The Yavapai Flood Control District is asking all contractors to prepare their construction sites for potential upcoming heavy rain and possible flash flooding (in anticipation of heavy rainfall due to Hurricane Odile). Please remember to check your project sites to ensure your stormwater and erosion pollution prevention control measures are properly in place (in line with your SWPPP ). Please spread the word to others to ensure that all appropriate measures are being implemented to reduce pollutants from construction site runoff/erosion.
Things to check:
- Check all wattles and straw bales. Ensure they are properly placed and staked.
- Check all silt fencing, and ensure that it is properly installed and no damage to the fabric is evident.
- Clean construction site and secure materials that are in areas where storm water flows.
If you have any questions on proper Best Management Practices or their installation, please contact the Flood Control District at (928) 771-3197.
