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.
In a continual effort to improve the way the City of Newburgh handles stormwater, we encourage public involvement and comment on the documents provided above. Please email us all comments or call 845-569-7447.
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 inspection 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.
