Stormwater Management Program (MS-4)

 

A message from the Village DPW & Codes Departments regarding the Onondage County F.O.G. Program: Avoid the Clog…..Keep out the F.O.G.  Remember to keep all fats, oil and grease out of the sewer lines by placing them in the garbage.  A clean-up can cost up to $4,000 and we would like to avoid this expense as much as possible. We encourage both residential and commercial businesses to help keep the sewer lines clear. Please note that soap and hot water will not dilute the grease sufficiently to prevent solidification in the sewer pipes and may contribute to a clog.

The Village of North Syracuse is required to develop, implement, and enforce a stormwater management program (SWMP) which is designed to reduce the discharge of pollutants from small Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4s) to the maximum extent practicable (MEP) to protect water quality and to satisfy the appropriate water quality requirements of the Environmental Conservation Law and the Clean Water Act. According to the federal regulation, the SWMP is required to be fully implemented by January 1, 2008 and consists of the following six minimum control measures:

1. Public Education and Outreach
2. Public Involvement and Participation
3. Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination
4. Construction Site Runoff Control
5. Post-Construction Runoff Control
6. Pollution Prevention and Good Housekeeping
