Central New York Stromwater Coalition

The 31 municipalities in the SUA are required to have NYS permit coverage, and meet certain permit conditions, in order to discharge from their drainage systems to our local waters, the majority of which are members of the Central New York Stormwater Coalition. The Coalition is working to meet regulatory stormwater management requirements while improving water quality throughout Central New York. By partnering with neighboring communities and other organizations such as CNY Regional Planning & Development Board, NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, Local Soil & Water Conservation Districts, The Syracuse-Onondaga County Planning Agency, and the Onondaga County Save the Rain Program, Coalition members are finding efficient ways to reduce and share the cost of regulatory compliance, reduce duplicative efforts, and leverage available funding opportunities...
