Stormwater runoff/Sewage separation: Is KC seeking an extension?

Post by missingkc »

Many cities required to separate stormwater runoff and sewage are seeking extensions for compliance. Does anyone know if KC is?

I'd be surprised if KC isn't, given the complaints about the rising costs of water bills.

Maybe we should wait for the current administration to overturn prior requirements :lol:

Somewhat related but the city is spending $80,000 to engage the public on the Main Street water line relocation. This appears to be a huge waste

How is it a waste? We learned with the streetcar that good closure communication around a project that impacts movement for multiple miles of length is important.

The city will need to come through again in 2-5 years and do more closures for the streetcar so this is basically an introduction to that project and sets the tone for things to come.

Does it include a budget item that helps the affected businesses communicate that they are still open during construction? That would not be a waste.

The ordinance says what it covers
The Public Engagement Plan also identifies how the project team will interact with stakeholders and the public, establishes key processes to distribute and communicate messages through several channels, and includes a master calendar of key events and milestones
...
Meet weekly with KC Water in order to accurately communicate schedules, locations, and other vital Information the public will need .to be kept up to date on throughout the duration of the project,
