MINUTES OF THE SALT LAKE CITY COUNCIL TUESDAY, JULY 7, 2020 20 - 3 QUESTIONS TO THE MAYOR FROM THE CITY COUNCIL There were no questions. POTENTIAL ACTION ITEMS #1. 7:32:38 PM Adopting an ordinance amendment to regulate and monitor the City’s storm sewer system. The storm sewer carries rainwater and melted snow through gutters and drains to an underground system that flows to nearby rivers, canals, or creeks. Sometimes pollutants in runoff may enter the storm sewer system and may impact downstream rivers and lakes. While the City has adopted ordinances to protect water quality, the proposed amendments more effectively meet changing federal and State regulations to ensure stormwater quality standards. The amendments also deal with the City's enforcement of the standards.
