The City of Beavercreek Street Department this winter continues to use a new tactic to treat streets for snow and ice. Before a snow or ice event begins, city crews will line the streets with salt brine, a clear water and sodium chloride solution.
For compliance under the Federal Water Pollution Control Act and amendments (33 USC 1251 et. seq.) and the Ohio Water Pollution Control Act (ORC 6111), dischargers of storm water from Small Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4) are authorized by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA) to discharge from the outfalls to the receiving surface waters of the state.
