Stormwater Pollution Prevention
     Upon request from municipalities or the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), subdivision plans are reviewed for potential impacts to water resources.

Construction Site Inspections
     In collaboration with the NYS DEC and the municipalities of Monroe County, we conduct construction site inspections and respond to citizens’ complaints in Monroe County for compliance with Phase II regulations for the State Pollution Discharge Elimination System (SPDES).

MCSWCD conducts construction site inspections to help protect water quality and reduce erosion. During these inspections, the District staff identify erosion and sediment control practices that may have been installed incorrectly or are absent in places where they should be implemented. Properly installed erosion and sediment control practices, such as silt fences, can save soil from being washed into roadside ditches, stormwater sewers, streams, ponds and lakes.


Landowner Consultations
     Our technicians meet with landowners to discuss at the request of local municipalities on stormwater maintenance issues, drainage concerns, and techniques for improving backyard wildlife habitat.

Stormwater Training Seminars
     The District hosts many stormwater training seminars throughout Monroe County. For more information on training details, click here!
