Metro Parks staff developed a Stormwater Management Plan to ensure the surface water runoff from our parks meets the best water quality standards possible as it enters our local rivers and streams. It includes inspections, education and public involvement. The plan must be adopted by our Board of Park Commissioners and available for the public to review and provide comment. Any questions or comments can be sent to
