WINSLOW, Ariz. - The Winslow Planning and Zoning Commission met June 19 and reviewed two items.
The first item was to approve a setback ordinance that requires any municipal water treatment structure be at least 350 feet from adjoining property. The setback was approved. The requirement is based on the fact that Winslow's treatment plant will be doing some future upgrades/retrofits and must comply to newer Arizona State regulations. The new regulations trickle down from federal standards and are also enforced by the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality.
The second item discussed were updates to commission members regarding the fact the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers had decertified seven miles of the levies east of Winslow and are now in the process of planning fixes. Recently there was a two-day meeting at the Hubbell building in Winslow with all relevant parties. The meeting concluded with a six-panel presentation of proposals and ways to fix the non-compliant levies. The U.S. Army Corps plans to publish detailed preliminary plans to bring the Winslow levies up to specification in July. The decertification was based on upgraded requirements enacted after levy breaches in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina.
