Chemung County Stormwater Coalition


STC has provided support to the Chemung County Stormwater Coalition since it formed in 2002. The Coalition was established to assist the eleven "urbanized" municipalities in the Elmira area with meeting urban runoff regulations. These communities were required to obtained state permits for their Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4ís). In addition to meeting the MS4 permit requirements, the Coalition strives to protect water quality and minimize flood hazards throughout Chemung County. Coalition membership thus includes both the urban and the rural municipalities of Chemung County. A Chemung County Stormwater Board has been created and staff hired to provide county-level coordination and support for the local stormwater programs. The Chemung County Stormwater webpage provides a wealth of information about the Coalition and the most recent MS4 Annual Report.

The NYS Department of Environmnental Conservation regulates stormwater runoff through its Construction Stormwater Permit and MS4 permit. 

The STC Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping program works closely with the Coalition to provide a wide range of stormwater related mapping and data. Wetlands, floodplains, and other information are available through an online mapping portal for Chemung County.
