MS4 Documentation & Reporting

The Phase II Stormwater Program of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) requires certain municipalities and other entities that operate Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4s) to prepare and implement a Stormwater Management Plan. The City of Newburgh is considered an MS4 area, subject to these regulations.

The current Municipal Separate Storm Sewer General Permit, GP-0-15-003, requires under Part V(C)(1) an Annual Report that documents the City's efforts toward five (5) minimal control measures. The reporting period is March 10th through March 9th of the following year and the final report must be submitted to the NYSDEC no later than January 1st. The latest annual report is offered below for public review and comment:

IDDE Outfall Inspection

Part VII.B.3.d of the NYSDEC SPDES General Permit for Stormwater Discharges requires the City of Newburgh to conduct an outfall reconnaissance inventory. Up to the 2017 Reporting Year the City had 36 documented outfalls that were rarely inspected for dry-weather flow. In late 2016 and early 2017 City staff revisited the inventory and conducted a revised outfall reconnaissance inventory from scratch, resulting in 283 documented outfalls. The documented outfalls are to be screened once every 5 years for dry-weather discharge.
