The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) enacted Phase II Storm Water regulations in March of 2003. These regulations require municipalities who own and operate separate storm sewer systems (MS4s) to comply with six minimum measures to improve water quality.
- Public Education & Outreach
- Public Involvement
- Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination
- Construction Site Storm Water Runoff Control
- Post-Construction Storm Water Management
- Pollution Prevention/Good Housekeeping procedures for Municipal Operations
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) was charged by the EPA to issue permits to municipalities across the state that require compliance with the Federal regulations. The regulations require each MS4 to submit an annual report to the NYS DEC in June of each year, the public comment period begins around May 1st of each year. The annual report captures compliance activities for the year and is kept on file in the office of the Town Clerk and also available on line at the link below for public viewing.
The Town of Henrietta has been working in cooperation with the State of New York, County of Monroe and all nineteen towns and ten villages to develop procedures, policies and practices to improve water quality. Developers, contractors, engineers and municipalities are all required to follow the regulations during and after development.
