What’s Up With Stormwater Compliance?

Published: February 12, 2019

What can be done to put a stop to the ugly Mud Floods that pollute our rivers and creeks with sediment and nutrient overloads?

With stormwater pollution the number one reason our rivers and creeks are classified as “impaired” waterways, controlling these pollution floods is paramount to improving water quality.

Find out Tuesday, Feb. 19, at 7 p.m. at Union Jack’s Pub in Parole during the Severn River Association’s Speaker Series meeting.

Our special guest will be Jesse Iliff with the Arundel Rivers Federation (ARF).

In his role as the South Riverkeeper, Jesse has produced an intensive study of enforcement activity by Anne Arundel County’s Inspections & Permits Department.

Jesse’s analysis confirms what all river groups suspected — that the county’s enforcement efforts provide little deterrent to permit violations and the county rarely issues any fines for stormwater, grading, clearing and other violations.

Jesse will offer a series of recommendations that could bolster stormwater compliance and protect our waterways from stormwater runoff pollution.
