  • The goal relative to park maintenance is protection of water resources & reduction of stormwater pollution from municipal properties.


Municipal property maintenance
Municipal Property Maintenance

Recognize connection of park operations to community water resources


Property management bmps
Property Management BMPs:

  • Landscape planning

  • Natural Material Recycling

  • Fertilizer/Insecticide Application

  • Products Use Tracking

  • Pest Control

  • Animal Waste Management

  • Septic System Inspection and Maintenance

  • Illicit Discharge

  • Illegal Dumping

  • Sediment & Erosion Control


Landscape planning
Landscape Planning

  • Reduce areas requiring irrigation

  • Mulch heavy use areas

  • Limit use of fertilizers/herbicides


Landscape planning1
Landscape Planning

  • Maintain existing water resources –provide adequate buffer


Landscape planning2
Landscape Planning

  • Provide adequate buffer


Landscape planning3
Landscape Planning

  • Stream protected by dense vegetation

  • No chemicals applied to grassed area


Landscape planning4
Landscape Planning

  • Provide signage within parks regarding importance of such features


Natural material recycling
Natural Material Recycling

  • Recycle municipal and residential natural materials

  • Use recycled materials in landscape management

Preferred integrated pesticide management ipm methods
Preferred Integrated Pesticide Management (IPM) Methods

  • Plant pest-resistant or well-adapted plant varieties such as native plants

  • Alter the park environment to deprive pests of the food, water, shelter, or other requirements they need to thrive


Preferred ipm methods
Preferred IPM Methods

  • Rely on natural enemies to kill pests, thereby eliminating the need for insecticides that may end up in our waterways

  • Choose products carefully so that the least toxic, most effective material is used

  • Be aware of application timing relative to weather


Ipm municpal parks
IPM Municpal Parks

  • Integrated weed management program can reduce most weeds to tolerable levels and prevent large, weed patches

  • Total elimination of weeds is not a realistic or necessary goal for most parks


Alternative approaches landscape management

Pet waste collection
Pet Waste Collection

  • Provide ample containers for trash/pet waste collection

  • Provide and maintain trash receptacles


Animal waste management
Animal Waste Management

  • Pollution from geese

  • Removal of nests


Septic systems
Septic Systems

  • Maintenance and Inspection of Septic Facilities within Municipal Parks


In addition you serve as the eyes of your community
In addition, you serve as the eyes of your community.

You have the opportunity to see your community on a regular basis.

You can make sure your community, and those working in it, are also taking care of the waterways.


Illicit discharge detection
Illicit Discharge Detection

Surface Discharge - Dumping pollutants into drains


Illegal Dumping

Post “No Dumping” signs to reinforce the message.

The signs will also help with enforcement if dumping occurs.


Sediment erosion control
Sediment & Erosion Control

Ensure that sediment and erosion control BMPs are maintained on municipal property improvement projects
