UB developed, implements, and enforces a stormwater management program designed to reduce or eliminate the discharge of pollutants from campus operations in an effort to protect neighboring water quality. This program also helps the University comply with the requirements of the Environmental Conservation Law and the Clean Water Act.
Issued by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), the Notice of Intent for coverage under an State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) general permit is for storm water discharges from small municipal separate storm sewer systems.
Required by the DEC, the annual report summarizes progress made on the six minimum control measures required by the stormwater management program.
Copies of the annual storm water report are available upon request:
The DEC has comprehensive information about stormwater and the regulatory requirements.
