Pursuant to the agreement, the district will assist the city in establishing a method of measuring the amount of sediment removed by city crews from its storm system, review sand and yard waste collection programs from other communities, run a pilot collection program in the spring and fall of 2005 in two separate neighborhoods and help the city develop a model that could lead to a city-wide, on-going program.


They will also be providing in-kind local match for the grant having a value of $4,900.
