AIRPORT DRAINAGE & STORMWATER IMPROVEMENT PERMIT
Presented by Jennifer Eckman
In February 2018, the Airport’s Wildlife Hazard Management Plan (WHMP) was revised and approved by the FAA. This revision included five (5) recommendations for Wildlife Hazard Mitigation. This project will include the modification and improvement of the existing drainage ditches, as well as the modification and improvement of airfield marshland area. As it relates to Storm Water Improvement, in April of 2013 a Storm Water Management Plan (SWMP) was completed for MOT. This SWMP identified general shortfalls and inadequacies to be resolved at the Airport in order to comply with City of Minot stormwater standards. Since 2018, the Airport has been under grant with the FAA to design these wildlife and storm water improvements. On December 7, 2020 the City Council approved a project change order to the original project which included the following tasks: Task 1 (Change from CATEX to SHORT EA); Task 2 (Public Involvement); and Task 3 (Permitting). The short EA and public involvement have been completed.
