Event description

Description

The City of New York's MS4 Program* exists to manage urban sources of stormwater runoff to protect and improve water quality. As stormwater flows over streets and other impervious surfaces, it can sweep up pollutants and such as oils, chemicals, pathogens and sediments. In separate sewer areas, this pollution is carried by the stormwater runoff and discharged directly into the City’s waterways. This can have a negative impact on water quality and recreational uses.

Many industrial and commercial activities can be sources of stormwater pollution. The City is developing a Stormwater Management Program (SWMP) that addresses stormwater discharges from industrial and commercial sources in these separately-sewered portions of the City.

Join us for a public presentation to learn more about this program and how it may impact your property and operations.


*A municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4) is a publicly-owned conveyance or system of conveyances (including but not limited to streets, ditches, catch basins, curbs, gutters, and storm drains) that is designed or used for collecting or conveying stormwater and that discharges to surface waters of the State. The City of New York received its first citywide MS4 permit on August 1, 2015. This permit is required under the Clean Water Act and is issued by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC). The intent of the MS4 permit is to manage urban sources of stormwater runoff to protect and improve water quality.
