[ARCHIVED] Roseville honored with clean water award

The City of Roseville received the Minnesota Blue Star Award at Monday night’s City Council meeting for its efforts to protect local water quality.

The award is sponsored by a partnership between State agencies, watershed districts, engineering firm Emmons & Olivier Resources, and non-profit group Friends of the Mississippi River. It is part of a statewide program honoring clean water communities by recognizes municipal efforts to keep runoff pollution from degrading nearby lakes, streams and wetlands.

Roseville received Blue Star’s fifth-highest score in an assessment of storm water management practices administered through the award program. The award recognized Roseville’s efforts to mitigate runoff through a combination of natural resource preservation, storm water management standards, pollution source controls, and other activities that exceed state requirements.

“We are all honored to receive the Blue Star Award for our community,” City Manager Patrick Trudgeon said. “Our Public Works staff, led by Director Duane Schwartz, works hard to make sure Roseville’s lakes, ponds, and streams remain in good condition. They are always looking for ways to improve so that issues like storm water and runoff have as little impact as possible. This award shows that we are heading in the right direction.”

Residents interested in learning more about Roseville’s storm water program may contact the Public Works Department at 651-792-7004 or visit the department’s website at www.cityofroseville.com/pulicworks. The website also has information on how residents can help manage residential storm water.
