2
WHAT IS STORMWATER?
  • Stormwater is precipitation that does not soak
    into the ground, but runs into a conveyance, such
    as a ditch or culvert
  • Stormwater flows from rooftops, roads, driveways,
    gutters, bare soil and all impervious surfaces
  • Stormwater picks up soil, salt, fertilizer, oil,
    debris, grease, animal waste, and other
    contaminants before it is discharged into local
    water bodies

3
STORMWATER IN URBAN AREAS
  • More impervious surface means more stormwater
    runoff which means increased surface water
    pollution

4
WHATS THE PROBLEM WITH STORMWATER?
  • Studies show that industrial or wastewater
    discharges are not the exclusive major surface
    water contamination sources, but that unregulated
    municipal stormwater discharges provide
    significant contamination as well
  • Stormwater picks up contaminants and pollutants
    and carries them into nearby water bodies

5
E.P.A. STORMWATER STUDIES
  • Clean Water Action Plan (1998) The main causes
    of surface water pollution

6
WHAT DOES STORMWATER POLLUTION LOOK LIKE?
  • Debris or chemicals that will eventually be
    washed into the stormwater collection system

7
THE CLEAN WATER ACT
  • Enacted in 1972
  • Driven largely by the fire on the Cuyahoga River
    in Ohio
  • Goal was to maintain and restore the chemical,
    physical and biological integrity of the waters
    of the United States

8
NATIONAL POLLUTION DISCHARGE ELIMINATION SYSTEM
(NPDES)
  • Set up by Section 402 of the Clean Water Act
  • Regulated discharges from sources such as
    industrial and municipal wastewater (point
    sources)
  • Amended in 1987 to include requirements from
    non-point sources such as stormwater
  • The regulations were implemented in two phases

9
PHASE I REGULATIONS FOR NPDES
  • Took effect in 1990
  • Included municipalities with populations greater
    than 100,000
  • Included many industrial activities and all
    construction sites disturbing more than five
    acres

10
PHASE II REGULATIONS FOR NPDES
  • Took effect on March 10th 2003
  • Included municipalities with populations between
    10,000 and 100,000 and population densities over
    1,000 people per square mile
  • Added regulation of construction activity
    disturbing between one and five acres

11
DEFINITION OF MS4
  • Stands for Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System
  • Includes municipalities that have a stormwater
    collection systems that do not mix with municipal
    waste water

12
MS4S UNDER PHASE I II
  • New York has approximately 450 separate
    Municipalities that fall under the Phase I or II
    Regulations

13
REQUIREMENTS FOR MS4S UNDER PHASE II
  • Apply for a NPDES permit
  • Note New York is a NPDES delegated state and
    therefore administers the program. In New York
    it is called SPDES
  • Develop a Stormwater Management Plan that
    includes the six minimum control measures that
    reduce stormwater pollution
  • Complete an Annual Report outlining specific
    actions and specific plans to address each of the
    six minimum measures

14
WHAT ARE THE SIX MINIMUM CONTROL MEASURES?
  • Public education and outreach
  • Public participation and involvement
  • Illicit discharge detection and elimination
  • Construction site runoff control
  • Post-construction runoff control
  • Pollution prevention and good housekeeping

15
PUBLIC EDUCATION AND OUTREACH Whats
Involved ?
  • Conduct an ongoing public outreach program
  • Distribute Fliers and Brochures
  • Put up posters

16
PUBLIC PARTICIPATION AND INVOLVEMENT Whats
Involved
  • Provide public access to documents and
    information
  • Encourage public involvement and participation on
    stormwater issues, such as discussion at Village
    meetings
  • Encourage public presentation and comment on the
    stormwater management plan and prepare an annual
    report
  • Identify a contact person for stormwater issues

17
ILLICIT DISCHARGE DETECTION AND ELIMINATION
Whats Involved
  • Prepare a map of the stormwater conveyance
    systems with all outfalls identified
  • Prohibit illicit discharges
  • with ordinances and enforcement
  • Inform the public of the hazards from illicit
    discharges
  • Identify where illicit discharges are taking place

18
CONSTRUCTION SITE RUNOFF CONTROL Whats
Involved
  • Require erosion and sediment controls through an
    ordinance or regulatory mechanism
  • Encourage the public to comment on construction
    plans

19
CONSTRUCTION SITE RUNOFF CONTROL Whats
Involved (contd)
  • Require overall construction site waste
    management
  • Require inspection of construction sites by
    Village officials
  • Educate and train construction site operators
  • Institute construction site and plan reviews by
    municipal officials

20
POST-CONSTRUCTION RUNOFF CONTROL Whats
Involved
  • Assess existing conditions and determine the best
    way to reduce pollutant discharge to the maximum
    extent practicable
  • Regulate post-construction runoff through an
    ordinance enforcement
  • Develop a management practice inspection and
    maintenance program

21
POLLUTION PREVENTION AND GOOD HOUSEKEEPING
Whats Involved
  • Prevent discharge of pollutants from municipal
    operations
  • Follow DEC NPS Management Practices catalog
  • Conduct employee training for pollution prevention

22
STORMWATER MANAGEMENT PLAN
  • Completed in March 2003 as a requirement under
    the Phase II regulations
  • Describes the regulatory requirements applicable
    to Brewster
  • Describes the characteristics of Brewster
    including
  • The overall population, topography and climate of
    the Village
  • The Village role in the NYC watershed
  • The existing stormwater conveyance system and
    drainage basins

23
STORMWATER MANAGEMENT PLAN (contd)
  • Describes the receiving water characteristics and
    potential pollution sources
  • For each one of the six minimum measures it
    outlines proposed control measures and measurable
    goals

PUBLIC OUTREACH AND EDUCATION What Brewster Has
Done
  • The Village, through the Village Engineer, has
    compiled a library of stormwater literature
    primarily from the USEPA, NYSDEC, and County
    governments
  • This information will be available on the IES web
    site

    management program. (This will likely require a
    new Village ordinance)
  • Establish a review and inspection procedure for
    construction as it relates to stormwater
    management
  • Develop requirements on waste management for
    construction site operators and provide
    information to contractors

    Plan (Master Plan)
  • The Village is currently revising zoning
    regulations

    post-construction runoff through the local site
    planning process

40
POST-CONSTRUCTION RUNOFF CONTROL Scheduled
Milestones
  • Continue to assess existing conditions throughout
    the Village and identify practices to reduce
    pollutant discharge
  • Adopt a Storm Water Ordinance implementing the
    practices identified during the assessment

41
POLLUTION PREVENTION AND GOOD HOUSEKEEPING What
Brewster Has Done
