The Committee Serves as an agent to address a variety of storm water issues statewide including Phase I and Phase II Implementation, Underground Injection Wells for Storm Water, SW Treatment Design Criteria and Storm Water Education.
Committee Chair—Steve Burgon, Salt Lake County
The Utah Storm Water Advisory Committee will coordinate their efforts to reduce storm water pollution and provide adequate flood control. The committee will evaluate and define governing regulations, disseminate information, promote efficient training, and assist local municipalities and other interested parties to implement best management practices that are consistent with their individual needs and resources. The committee will also support efforts of State and Federal agencies to implement necessary storm water regulations that are economically feasible.
