August Stormwater Toolbox Newsletter

Read the newsletter by clicking the following link:

The goal of the Goshen Stormwater Department is clean water for everyone and everything. One way this is achieved is through public education and the Stormwater Toolbox Newsletter is one of many ways this is accomplished.

In this month’s newsletter, there are three articles:

  1. Updating SOPs – The City is required to update standard operating procedures (SOPs) to comply with the City’s MS4 General Permit and is working with Wessler Engineering to accomplish this.
  2. Pollywogging is a method of searching for freshwater mussels and as another National Water Quality Month comes to a close the importance of freshwater mussels to water quality is highlighted.
  3. Find out the origins of the word “Stream” in the next installment of “Why are there so many words for waterways?”.

If you have concerns about stormwater drainage or water quality issues or have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact the Goshen Stormwater Department at or 574-534-2201.
