Superior Conducts Annual Stormwater Cleaning Training

The training was at the Estuarium in Superior.

SUPERIOR, Wisc. – Experts with the city of Superior say stormwater is the biggest pollutant to Lake Superior from their community.

Contractors and consultants who design and implement new projects in the city took part in an annual training for stormwater cleaning.

The training provides tips and techniques on how to handle stormwater pollution that could potentially come off construction sites if not handled properly.

“We’ll look at what has been done on previous construction sites, what works well, what has not worked well and we look at new tech standards for managing storm water,” said City of Superior Water Resource Specialist Andrea Crouse.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources was also at the training discussing what they look for at construction sites and the state is an active participant in trainings as well.

“They’ll also have the most updated information from the state about the new ways they could be managing storm water on their properties,” said Crouse. “So if there are easier ways to implement best management practices we make that available to them.”
