CANTON, Ohio — 

On Saturday, April 30, 2011 at 10 a.m. the city will celebrate Earth Day and Arbor Day by dedicating the Fairhope Nature Preserve.  This family event will include a dedication ceremony, hayrides, crafts, tree planting, food and refreshments.  The celebration is free and open to the public.

Due to widespread flooding in 2003, the city initiated the design and construction of several trunk storm sewers, including the 30th Street NE trunk sewer that runs from Harmont Avenue to Millvale Avenue.  This 66-inch diameter pipe drains roughly through 250 acres of land and outlets to the Fairhope …

Runoff Rundown: Road Salt
By Chris Barnes/Assistant City Engineering
Posted: Jan 10, 2011

CANTON, Ohio — 

It’s cold and the snow is flying! While some of us would like to avoid the outdoors as much as possible during this time of year, unfortunately we’re forced to deal with snow and ice buildup on our driveways and streets. This means shoveling, snow-blowing or plowing and adding a de-icing agent like sodium chloride (“road salt”) for safer and easier travel.

Road salt works by lowering the freezing point of water, keeping ice and snow from bonding to pavement. This allows for easier removal by …

City takes action to prevent polluted runoff
By Chris Barnes, Assistant City Engineer
Posted: Dec 25, 2009

Late last year, City Council adopted a storm water management program in compliance with requirements of the EPA’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (Phase II) Storm Water Program. The goal of this effort was to consolidate and update many existing storm water related ordinances that address both storm water quality management and storm water quantity management for development projects in the City.

These ordinances are important because they address illegal and dangerous pollutant discharges into the City’s storm water drainage system.  This regulation of discharge is the …
