Stormwater – be an H2O Hero
The Town of Perinton has developed and maintains a stormwater management plan (SWMP) and is committed to collaborating with local businesses and residents in pursuit of clean stormwater in accordance with the NYSDEC SPEDES general permit for stormwater discharges from municipal separate storm systems. The SWMP consists of six minimum measures: public education, public participation, control of illicit discharges, erosion control at construction sites, post-construction stormwater controls, and pollution prevention at municipal facilities.
Stormwater pollution is the sediment, bacteria, fertilizers, pesticides, automotive fluids and other materials that are washed from surfaces such as parking lots, roads, roofs, and construction sites during a rain storm or snow melt. The gutters, storm drains, pipes, ditches, and outfalls that comprise the stormwater system transport these pollutants to the nearest waterway. In many cases, stormwater runoff is not treated at a wastewater treatment plant.
The Town of Perinton collaborates with the Monroe County Stormwater Coalition to develop educational opportunities, investigate and implement best management practices, provide and offer training and ensure that Perinton has the tools it needs to keep our local waterways clean of stormwater pollution.
