If you’d like to attend, please call or e-mail to reserve a seat: email@example.com or 447-5645. This is the fourth of eight webcasts produced by the Center for Watershed Protection and purchased by the Stormwater Coalition of Albany County as part of their public education and outreach program. See flyer for details. Join us for this month’s “Stormwater Wednesday” webcast!
By June 1, regulated MS4/municipalities must file with NYSDEC an Annual Report which describes progress over the past year implementing program requirements named in the MS4 Stormwater Permit. As required by the Permit, prior to finalizing the report, a DRAFT Annual Report is made available to the public for comment.
This 2013 Draft Joint Annual Report describes collaborative and individual activities of all 13 Coalition members. These activities include public education and participation; storm system mapping; outfall reconnaissance; pollution track down, local law adoption and enforcement; oversight of construction activity; performance tracking of stormwater practices; green infrastructure support; facility audits; and MS4/municipal staff training.
The Annual Report itself is a standardized form developed by NYSDEC which can be explained in further detail upon request. Please use the website Public Comment interface to submit your comments and as needed to request a meeting. The public comment period ends May 17, 4pm and the FINAL Joint Annual Report will be posted after June 1.
