The Board will present the Outstanding Employee Team of the Quarter award to the Stormwater Pollution Prevention Mapping Team.
Supervisor Rice read the following:
The Marin County Stormwater Pollution Prevention Program assembled an interdisciplinary team of planners, engineering technicians, geographic information systems specialists and volunteers in 2013 to undertake one of the largest mapping efforts in Marin County’s history. They were tasked with finding and mapping over 2,300 stormwater pipes from Bolinas to Belvedere. The mapping team completed their two-year project to map more than 2,300 discharged pipes throughout Marin, which enabled the county and its member cities and towns to achieve compliance with the state’s stormwater pollution prevention mapping and monitoring requirements. The team mapped and inspected thousands of drainage pipes and visited 340 businesses and 350 municipally-owned facilities. During dry weather, the team monitored the quality of water flowing out of municipal drainage pipes to eliminate excess irrigation runoff into creeks and the bay. This comprehensive mapping information is critical in prioritizing areas for future stormwater pollution prevention and is now available to MarinMap users and local jurisdictions.
The team’s effort saved Marin’s municipalities thousands of dollars by sharing the cost of permit compliance, testing equipment, field monitoring, data management, and mapping. The County of Marin thanks the MCSTOPPP Mapping Team for its valuable contribution to the community.
The team members are Terri Fashing, Liz Lotz, Howard Bunce, Rob Carson, Angela Klapp, Christina David, Michelle Gantos, Lynne Scarpa, Kendall Pegan, and Jake Kramarz.
