  2. Programs Water Quality • Pollution Control • Stream Restoration • Operating • NPDES permit • Customer Service • Finances

  3. City Billing/Administration

  4. FY2008 Storm Water Services Program Highlights • Capital Program - $33.5 million • Neighborhood-wide projects (50%) • Repairs (29%) • Water Quality (12%) • Strategic Collaboration (9%) • Operating Plan - $12.6 million • NPDES Work Plan • PCCO • Street Maintenance

  5. FY2008 Storm Water Services Program Highlights • Fee Drivers • Capital projects (catching up with aging infrastructure) • Increased construction costs • Steady influx of requests for service • Less reliance on bond revenue • Long Range Fee Plan • Declining rate increases

  6. Long Term Plan • 1993 – 2007 • 10% increases to complete high priority maintenance backlog • 7.5% increases through FY06 to continue aggressive attack on the channels and large projects • 2008 forward • 7% increases thru FY10 • Stepping down increases to cost of living

  12. Charlotte Flood Control Program

  13. Engineering Team • Team Leader • 2 Watershed Area Managers • 1 Senior Project Manager • 10 Project Managers • 2 Project Coordinators • 1 Construction Manager • 2 Senior Construction Inspectors • 4 Construction Inspectors

  14. Engineering Team Responsibilities • Provide Project Management, Construction Management and Inspection on 21 Flood Control Projects, 8 Stream Restoration and 11 Water Quality/ Pollution Control Projects • Provide Technical Support to Transportation and Neighborhood Improvement Programs • Provide Project Management on Transit driven projects • Review Rezoning Requests • Review & approve Fee Credits • Interface with City Council on Floodplain Regulations • Establish, Maintain & Update Policies, Procedures, Storm Drainage Design Manual & Fee Credit Manual • Manage the storm water economic development program

  15. Flood Control Program • Flood control projects are watershed-wide drainage system improvements, system problems and solutions are inter-connected and drain up to one square mile. • Typical planning, design and construction duration – 5-7 years • Typical costs range from $500,000 - $10,000,000 • Annual Funding of $17,304,000

  16. Flood Control Program • Completed around 60 projects • Currently working on 21 flood control projects (at various phases) • Backlog of 58 identified project areas • 1993 – present: Flood Control Projects defined by density of service requests and assessment by Storm Water Inspector & Engineer. • Watershed Priority Ranking efforts becoming more proactive. • Perform approximate modeling to determine street and house flooding • Number of Backlog projects will likely increase

  17. Strategic Investment Programs • Collaboration with various City Programs where we provide technical support and funding • Neighborhood Projects - $515,000 • Transportation Projects - $515,000 • Transit - $1,081,500 • Economic Development - $515,000

  18. Charlotte Water Quality/Permitting Program

  19. NPDES Permit Program • Charlotte Phase 1 MS4 -1993 • Partnered w/County since that time • Recent permit renewal • Six minimum measures Some city, some shared • City staff are permit managers • S&EC City, separate division • Education/volunteer program elements, shared • Monitoring, IDDE, Contracted to Meck Co. • Good Housekeeping, shared • PCCO – City

  20. WQ/Stream Monitoring Network County doing or shall we?

  21. Impaired Streams • Causes of impairment • TMDL’s written for most • NPDES permit requires “Water Quality Recovery Program” • $1 Billion backlog (only WQ) • CWA holds us responsible

  22. NPDES - PCCO Highlights • Currently proposed for City and ETJ • Proposal goes beyond mandated minimums • Adds controls for Flooding /erosion reduction • Adds open space requirements • Includes redevelopment provisions – 303d recovery • Addresses issues related to endangered mussel • Includes several fee-in-lieu options (non-flood) • Controversial

  23. Reversing ImpairmentWQ Capital Program • Conduct restoration activities - Eteam • Not required, yet • Stream Restoration • BMP projects • Inside CIPs • Partnerships w/schools, parks, ED, County • Pond program • Watershed restoration projects – SR & BMP

  24. Innovative Programs • BMP testing program • Construct and monitor a range of structural BMP’s • Supports successful protection measures • Supports restoration efforts • Benchmarks costs and effectiveness • http://stormwater.charmeck.org - professionals • Watershed monitoring/research projects • Edwards Branch • Beaverdam Creek

  25. Permitting Program and the Stream Mitigation Bank • 401/404 permitting for City projects • Heavy use of consultants • Permitted XXX projects per year • 2003 - First Stream Mitigation Bank • Stream projects are ‘banked’ through credit system • Offsets impacts of other City projects (airport) • Allows us to keep restoration benefits local, rather than pay to state • Reduces the cost of restoration, 303d • Vegetation management for all projects

  26. City WQ Budget • About $2M operating • Pays for County services • 10 Internal staff • Education and global planning • Excludes S&EC staff (10 inspectors) • About $4M Capital • Funds named projects, < 1 sq mi. • 11% of total City CIP • Shared between SR, Pond, BMP projects • Excludes grant funds • Excludes revenue from mitigation bank sales
