Water Quality and Stormwater Treatment Facilities

The Stormwater Treatment Ordinance requires the construction and on-going maintenance of Stormwater Treatment Facilities (STF). Stormwater Treatment Facilities are used to both control and treat stormwater run-off before it enters the City’s stormwater drainage system. Most new development and redevelopment projects within the City will require the construction of these facilities as part of Planning Commission approval for the project.

These structures will require an annual maintenance review conducted by an engineer or landscape architect licensed in the state of Kansas (SMC 11.16.160 – Annual Certification). This recertification process needs to be completed by October 1 annually. Letters will be mailed out to remind of this process and helpful checklists will be provided. Additional copies of this checklist can be obtained below.
