Road Pollution Reduction
CRWP worked with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources to develop additional language that can be incorporated into communities’ erosion and sediment control and comprehensive stormwater management ordinances to minimize nonpoint source pollution impacts from roads. Language applicable to roads is typically scattered throughout communities’ ordinances. The document, “Minimizing Nonpoint Source Pollution Impacts from Roads”, provides code language designed to be a model for Ohio municipalities. Townships may need to revise these recommendations. This document is organized to present recommendations where each is typically found in a community’s ordinances.*
*This model code language was prepared by Chagrin River Watershed Partners using Federal funds under award NA18NOS4190096 from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce through the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Office of Coastal Management. The statements, findings, conclusions, and recommendations are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Department of Commerce, Ohio Department of Natural Resources, or the Office of Coastal Management.
