Stormwater Management


Program Reporting and Effectiveness

The SPDES General Permit for Stormwater Discharges from Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4s), requires certain administrative activities necessary to ensure that the MS4's stormwater program is meeting all permit requirements and is effective. These activities include: annual reporting, compliance certifications, record keeping, and program assessment.

Developing and using a web-based format to document and implement the Oneida County DPW's stormwater program allows the DPW to easily report, record, assess and modify program and plan elements as needed. This module will be revised regularly to incorporate any new or modified information such as BMPs or measurable goals. Additionally, information will be made readily available to employees, to contractors, to the public, and to regulators.

Annual Report Documents:

An Annual Report, completed on the appropriate State forms, is required to be submitted to the NYS DEC by June 1st of each year. Accompanying each Annual Report must be a Municipal Compliance Certification (MCC) form with original signatures. Previously filed Annual Reports and MCC forms are posted below.

Draft Annual Report Documents:

Below, the Oneida County DPW has posted its Draft Annual Report that must be submitted to the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation by June 1 of this reporting year. The public can review this report on-line and submit comments using the Draft Annual Report Comment Form.

Record Keeping:

A regulated MS4 must keep records required by the General Permit for at least five years after they are generated. Such records may include, but are not necessarily limited to: elements of the Stormwater Management Plan, the Notice of Intent, past Annual Reports, comments received from the public, and comments from the DEC. Many of these documents are included in previous sections of this webpage and are available for viewing by the public, MS4 staff, and regulators.
