City of Struthers is Now Struthers Water Pollution Control
The Struthers Waste Water Treatment Plant has morphed into the Struthers Water Pollution Control Facility. In addition to treating 4.5 million gallons of waste water per day and removing 500 tons of solid waste from the waste water flow. The now Water Pollution Control Facility also has assumed the implemntation of the Federally mandated storm water utility. The basis of the storm water utility are the six minimum control measures.
- 1. Public Education and Outreach
Distributing educational materials and performing outreach to inform citizens about the impacts polluted storm water runoff discharges can have on water quality.
- 2. Public Participation/Involvement
Providing opportunities for citizens to participate in program development and implementation, including effectively publicizing public hearings and/or encouraging citizen representatives on a storm water management panel
- 3. Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination
Developing and implementing a plan to detect and eliminate illicit discharges to the storm sewer system (includes developing a system map and informting the community about hazards associated with illegal discharges and improper disposal of waste).
- 4. Constructions Site Runoff Control
Developing, implementing and enforcing an erosion and sediment control program for construction activities that disturb 1 or more acres of land (controls could include silt fences and temporary storm water detention ponds).
- 5. Post-Construction Runoff Control
Developing, implementing and enforcing a program to address discharges of post-construction storm water runoff from new development and redevelopment areas. Applicable controls could include preventive actions such as protecting sensitives areas (e.g., wetlands) or the use of structural BMPs such as grassed swales or porous pavement.
- 6. Pollution Prevention/Good Housekeeping
Developing and implementing a program with the goal of preventing or reducing pollutant runoff from municipal operations. The program must include municipal staff training on pollution prevention measures and techniques (e.g., regular street sweeping, reductions in use of pesticides or street salt, or frequent catch-basin cleaning).
