Officers are traffic accident report takers only. They assess each accident on a case by case basis. Officers make a determination as to the contributing factors in the accident, but they do not determine fault. If you disagree with the final accident report, you should contact the officer to discuss your concerns. The officer has the final say in how the report is written. Who pays for damage and other related costs is a matter which must be determined in civil court and/or between insurance companies. You should contact your insurance agent and/or an attorney.

Stormwater is any precipitation that collects in a natural or constructed storage or transport system following a storm event.
For example, during construction of a new building or neighborhood, sites are often cleared and the soil is firmly compacted, which prevents rainfall or snowfall from soaking into the soil. As a result, the rainfall streams along the surface of the ground. This is stormwater runoff.
After construction activities, impervious areas such as roads, rooftops, parking areas, and sidewalks prevent infiltration of moisture from rain and snowfall, thus increasing natural stormwater runoff. This runoff can be too much for the existing natural drainage systems to handle.
As a result, natural drainage systems are often altered to rapidly collect runoff and convey it away (using curb and gutter, enclosed storm sewers, and lined channels). The stormwater runoff is then discharged to downstream waters such as streams, reservoirs, and lakes.
The City of Shelbyville is responsible for the stormwater quality that drains from properties into our storm sewer system and discharges to state waters.
As part of the Stormwater Phase II Regulations, the City of Shelbyville was required to apply to the State of Kentucky Division of Water for a Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit. The five-year permit was granted to the City of Shelbyville in March 2003. Under this permit, the City of Shelbyville is mandated to improve water quality from our storm system or MS4.
The permit requires the City address six areas or control measures. The six control measures are:
Several tasks and activities have been identified within each control measure. The ultimate goal of each control measure is to reduce the impact stormwater has on our local receiving streams.
Water that soaks into the soil is naturally filtered and cleaned. Water flowing on the surface of developed property picks up pollutants such as:
The effect of one property on the quality and quantity of stormwater runoff may seem insignificant. However, the cumulative impact from hundreds of thousands of properties across the state can negatively affect our water quality.
And keep in mind; much stormwater runoff, after it enters lakes, streams, and reservoirs, or soaks into the ground, eventually becomes drinking water for downstream communities. This is one reason protecting water quality is so critical in the City of Shelbyville.
Impervious area creates a barrier to water soaking into the soil and prevents the rainfall or snowfall from recharging groundwater supplies in that area. This increases the downstream surface water flow.
Have you seen any suspicious dumping into a storm drain? Have you noticed any suspicious outflow from a culvert or storm sewer? Do you have questions on stormwater quality? Please contact Jennifer Herrell (Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Coordinator / City Engineer) at 502-633-1094.
