SPDES Stormwater Program

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 Camillus 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 of Camillus has designated Code Enforcement Officer Gregg Humphrey as the stormwater contact for construction related stormwater issues.  For more information on the stormwater requirements please contact him at 315-487-8930 or  The Town of Camillus has designated Highway Superintendent Paul Legnetto as the designated stormwater contact for illicit discharges identified by the public.   He may be contacted at 315-672-5556 or

The Town was required to pass two new ordinances to address stormwater.  These ordinances prohibit illicit discharges to the Town's sewer system and establish the stormwater requirements for new construction projects within the Town and can be viewed in Chapter 26-Article VI of the Municipal Code and Chapter 43 of the Municipal Code.  The following links are also provided for additional information.
