5.3: Long-Term Stormwater Management Plan and Agreement
Year Executed: 2011
Reference Regulation:
4.2.1.3, 4.2.1.4, 4.2.4.3.1, 4.2.5.2.2, 4.2.5.3, 4.2.5.5, 4.2.5.5.1, 4.2.5.5.2, 4.2.5.5.3, 4.2.5.6, 4.2.5.7, 4.2.5.7.1, 4.2.5.7.2
Target Pollutants:
Trash, debris, nutrients, pesticides & herbicides, bacteria & viruses, automotive petrochemicals, detergents, cleaning agents and sediment. Other pollutants common with commercial, private communities, institutions and public infrastructure.
Audience:
Developers, Engineers, Architects, Planners and City Staff
Description:
New development and redevelopment is required to create a Long-Term Stormwater Management Plan.  The program consist of Long-Term Stormwater Management Plan Template and an Agreement form.  The Agreement defines the developments legal responsibility to the City and MS4 regulations and the Plan explains the stormwater infrastructure, its limitations and the necessary maintenance to preserve flood control and protect the quality of stormwater runoff.
The Long-Term Stormwater Management Plan purpose:
1. Inform the Owner including, personnel, subcontractors, consultants, agents and maintenance subcontractors of the long-term stormwater management purpose and regulations.
2. Describe the site infrastructure and its abilities and limitations at controlling and containing pollutants.
3. Describe the developments unique maintenance requirements necessary maintain adequate flood control and water quality control.
4. Provide standard operation procedures to compensate for limitations of the site infrastructure and its operations.
5. Facilitate Owner reporting.
6 Facilitate Owner accountability.
The program also satisfies 4.2.1.3, 4.2.1.4 as per the rational below.
Rational:
The intention is to ensure new development and redevelopment control and contain their impact generated by their site’s operations and maintenance.  The approach is to encourage the owner to design LID into the site infrastructure to minimize or contain pollutants in order to reduce the level of standard operation procedures necessary to compensate for the LID limitations.  For example, if the site retains all runoff or the structural water quality device is designed to filter the pollutants it generates then the SOP's can less controls.  However, when the site infrastructure will not contain the pollutants then the SOP must include controls to compensate.  This encourages the Owner to design LID and effective permanent water quality devices in order to reduce the maintenance requirements.  However, ultimately the owner is expected to demonstrate through inspection reports that the sites Long-Term Stormwater Management Plan is effective at controlling the pollutants.
Measure of Success:
Evaluate Long-Term Stormwater Management Plan implementation and inspection reports and annually conclude or  summarize progress and effectiveness.
Responsible Staff:
Stormwater Manager
Funding:

Program Documents:
Conclusion:
2018-2019
The City has required and successfully obtained robust Long-Term Stormwater Management plans and agreements for the majority of projects since 2011.  Only less than a hand full of protects of political nature have not completed the Long-Term Stormwater Management Plan and Agreements however, staff intends to ultimately obtain them as allowed with program follow up.    Program for implementation is working and does not need to be changed however owner maintenance follow up is inadequate.  Riverton staff is recommending personnel dedicated to managing annual reporting and education to conform to the permit. 



5.4: Stormwater System Covenant
Year Executed: 2016
Reference Regulation:
4.2.5.3, 4.2.5.5, 4.2.5.5.3, 4.2.5.7, 4.2.5.7.1, 4.2.5.7.2
Target Pollutants:
Trash, debris, nutrients, pesticides & herbicides, bacteria & viruses, automotive petrochemicals, detergents, cleaning agents and sediment. Other pollutants common with small private communities.
Audience:
Developers, Engineers, Architects, Planners and City Staff
Description:
The Stormwater System Covenant(CTM) document is intended to protect required small private stormwater infrastructure necessary for flood management and the water quality controls.   The CTM establishes responsibility to the infrastructure that must be maintained and protected in order to prevent flooding to the property and adjacent properties including City right of way from the increased runoff impacts and pollutants generated on the property that can affect surface waters and groundwater.  It defines the legal boundaries of the flood control and water quality infrastructure and any maintenance requirements to ensure adequate performance of the system.      
Rational:
The LTSWMP was not reasonable and practicable for small private developments that are not likely to have an active and functioning HOA.   The primary purpose is inform the property owners of flood control, any specific water quality components and their responsibilities to the drainage system, however, the maintenance for the water quality is typically not included because these properties are categorized with the rest of the single family property owners who are covered by the City SWMP.   Generally these drainage systems are expected to be LID in nature having a intrinsic water quality benefit. 
Measure of Success:
Successful long term preservation is the measure of success.  The water quality success will be measured by other programs.
Responsible Staff:
Stormwater Manager
Funding:
Stormwater Utility
Program Documents:
Conclusion:
2017-2018
The Covenant to Maintain is expected to be useful in the future.  Currently, it aids at ensuring the flood management and water quality control systems are complete and inspected prior to allowing occupancy of the property.  From past experience it has been a challenge to restore flood control infrastructure from being modified or destroyed by the property owner when the property owner was not informed of the flood control system and why it needed to be protected.  It is expected that the water quality infrastructure will also need this same level of education in order to protect it.  

 



5.5: Public Infrastructure Retrofit Plan
Year Executed: 2010
Reference Regulation:
4.2.5.3.3
Target Pollutants:
Trash, debris, nutrients, and sediment. 
Audience:
Riverton Public Works Department, and Engineering & Stormwater Division staff
Description:
City projects are required to follow Riverton City Stormwater Design Standards and Regulations as do private development.  New and existing public infrastructure projects are required to bring the proposed infrastructure up to current design standards which include low impact development designs.
Rational: 
A program to retrofit existing public infrastructure adversely impacting water quality is required by the MS4 regulation.  Existing infrastructure is not likely adequate at containing pollutants and will likely need additional controls to compensate for its limitations in order to comply with the future TMDL.  The existing canals have some benefit of trapping urban pollutants but the City should also be accountable to this private system and prevent our impact on them.
Measure of Success:
Evaluate the successful and failures of retrofit projects in the retrofit log included with this program. 
Responsible Staff:
Stormwater Manager, Public Works Director
Funding:
General fund, Stormwater Utility
Standard Operations Procedures:
Stormwater Design Standards and Regulations
Capital Facility Plan:
Capital Facility Plan(CFP) includes Impact and infrastructure deficiency based capital projects.  The water quality related deficiency are marked by the CFP description. 
Appendix:
Conclusion:
2018-2019
The program is functioning but all City Departments are not aware of this program.  More training and all City Department's and Division's support in necessary.  The Public Works Department and Stormwater Division are implementing this program and have built two projects this report period, see Retrofit Log.

5.6: Private Property Retrofit Plan
Year Executed: 2019
Reference Regulation:
4.2.5.5.1, 4.2.5.5.3, 4.2.5.7, 4.2.5.7.1, 4.2.5.7.2
Target Pollutants:
Trash, debris, nutrients, pesticides & herbicides, bacteria & viruses, automotive petrochemicals, detergents, cleaning agents and sediment.
Audience:
Developers, Engineers, Architects, Planners and City Staff
Description:
Facilitate preparing a Long-Term Stormwater Management Plan and entering into a maintenance agreement  for private properties without an adequate maintenance program or prepare and record a Stormwater System Covenant for smaller properties not warranting a Long-Term Stormwater Management Plan.  This program is initiated when properties operations or systems are found to pollute and can be enforce with or without a Notice of Violation.
Rational: 
Facilitate a mechanism for adequate maintenance to prevent polluting waterways and to bring all obligated private properties into compliance with the MS4 Permit
Measure of Success:
Maintain a record of enforcement facilitating the implementation of this program.

5.7: New Development LID Incentive
Year Executed: 2011
Reference Regulation:
4.2.5.3.2
Target Pollutants:
Trash, debris, nutrients, pesticides & herbicides, bacteria & viruses, automotive petrochemicals, detergents, cleaning agents and sediment.
Audience:
Developers, Engineers, Architects, Planners and City Staff
Description:
Riverton City offers a Stormwater Utility Fee discount to development who reduce polluted discharges and runoff volumes. 
Rational: 
The program encourages operators to incorporate LID in excess of the City minimums.  Reducing runoff will trap more pollutants than would normally runoff and increase infiltration and evaporation improving water quality to rivers, streams, creeks and canals.
Measure of Success:
Maintain a inventory of qualifying properties and make performance conclusions regarding the Operators LTSWMP inspection reports. 
Responsible Staff:
Public Works Director, Stormwater Utility Manager
Funding:
Stormwater Utility
Program Documents:
Conclusion:
2011-2018
Two new development Operators have implemented LID that warrant a fee reduction but the majority of development have chosen not to take advantage of the program.  



5.8: Existing Development LID Incentive
Year Executed: 2011
Reference Regulation:
4.2.5.3.2
Target Pollutants:
Trash, debris, nutrients, pesticides & herbicides, bacteria & viruses, automotive petrochemicals, detergents, cleaning agents and sediment.
Audience:
Commercial, HOA's, Institutional and Industrial Property Owners
Description:
Application process for an Operator to apply for a fee reduction by implementing implement LID infrastructure.
Rational: 
The program provides financial incentive encouraging operators to incorporate LID over and above the minimums.  LID generally reduces runoff trapping more pollutants than would normally runoff and increase infiltration and evaporation.
Measure of Success:
Maintain a inventory of qualifying properties and make performance conclusions regarding the Operators LTSWMP inspection reports.
Responsible Staff:
Public Works Director, Stormwater Manager
Funding:
Stormwater Utility
Program Documents:
