Managing stormwater runoff has become the focus of federal, state, and local legislation. There are many things you can do as a city resident, especially if you work in certain industries such as construction and auto recycling.
Did you know that the automobile is the number one recycled product in America? Over 75% of the materials from cars are recycled. Recycled vehicles generate over 12 million tons of recycled steel, saving enough energy to power over 18 million homes for a full year. Your work makes a real difference to the environment. On the other hand, if you handle wrecked cars or trucks without proper care, it can cause environmental damage.
Note: You can also find brochures on stormwater management at City Hall, the Newburgh Free Library, and the Code Compliance office, located at: 123 Grand Street Newburgh, NY 12550
