Protecting & Restoring Long Island's Peconic Bays
As a unified group of stakeholders, the Committee believes the future health and productivity of the Peconic Estuary requires a coordinated effort. The Committee members also recognize that intermunicipal cooperation is an effective and resource-efficient means to comply with the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Water Act and State regulations on stormwater discharges from municipal separate storm sewer systems.
The Committee discusses planning and regulatory items such as the Long Island Nitrogen Action Plan and the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) General Permit for Stormwater Discharges from Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4s). The Committee also shares updates on water quality projects funded by the Community Preservation Fund.
