For sewer and stormwater hotline – 24 hour service from the Onondaga County Water Environmental Protection at 315-435-3157
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) is overseeing a federally mandated program to control stormwater runoff and protect waterways. Permits are required for stormwater discharges from Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4s) in urbanized areas and for construction activities disturbing one or more acres. The Town of Van Buren has been automatically designated as a regulated MS4. As such, the Town is required to develop a comprehensive stormwater management program.
Water from rain or melting snow runs off land, carrying litter, soil, bacteria and other pollutants into our waters. Large amounts of stormwater rushing off paved surfaces can flood yards, streets and basements. The goal of NYSDEC’s stormwater program is to correct these problems; which, in turn, will protect and restore our valuable environmental resources.
The Town has designated the Code Enforcement Officer as their designated stormwater contact. For more information on the stormwater requirements please contact the CEO at 315-635-3604. The Town Code Enforcement Office should be contacted for construction related stormwater questions or if you see any sources of stormwater pollution.
