The Stormwater Consortium of Rockland County was formed to allow for a collaborative approach to addressing water quality concerns. This approach has led to the development and implementation of a comprehensive State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Phase II compliance program.
The Consortium comprised of 24 participating MS4s has worked to achieve the six minimum control measures. Participating MS4s include all 5 towns and 19 villages in Rockland County. Establishing a Consortium has provided a platform for the exchange of information and ideas for meeting the new permit requirements.
In collaboration with Cornell Cooperative Extension and the Soil & Water Conservation District, the Consortium has provided the following:
The GAC is an event that brings out over 4 million volunteers nationwide. Join the thousands of Rockland County residents who will remove tons of litter from our streets, parks and waterways and help make our communities cleaner, healthier and more beautiful. More information will be available in February.
