Nampa's ponders stormwater runoff plan; failure could be costly

Nampa's ponders stormwater runoff plan; failure could be costly

Mitch Coffman
May 4, 2012

As Nampa searches for ways to meet increasingly strict federal requirements for stormwater runoff, there are a few key things to be aware of, according to the Idaho Press-Tribune, and the costs to the city could be huge.

First, Nampa must develop a plan to educate the public, discharge elicit stormwater, control construction site runoff, develop a post-construction management plan for water runoff and devise a pollution prevention program from city operations. Each one of required things costs money, lots of money. In fact, the total is just under $1.2 million.

But, there is more. Should Nampa fail to meet all of the EPA requirements, the city is subject to administrative penalties of $37,500 per day, civil penalties ranging from $16-000-$37,500 per day and criminal penalties for local policymakers if the violation is severe. Those penalties could result in fines from $2,500-$500,000 and include 1-30 years in prison.
