dc.description.abstractThis "Green Infrastructure Retrofit Plan: Northrup Creek- Long Pond" identifies and prioritizes potential stormwater retrofit projects to address existing water quality issues including nutrients (phosphorus), weed/algal growth, and streambank erosion. Long Pond has been listed as an impaired waterbody in the New York State SPDES General Permit for Stormwater Discharges from Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4s). This designation requires that MS4s insure no net increase in the discharge of pollutants of concern (phosphorus). The Towns of Greece, Ogden, and Parma, as well as the Village of Spencerport, are MS4s and located within the Long Pond watershed. In addition, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has prepared a draft Total Maximum Daily Load for Long Pond. Monroe County and the Stormwater Coalition have prepared this plan as a first step in complying with the "no net increase" requirement and to demonstrate to USEPA that the communities can address these water quality issues without the imposition of an additional regulatory framework.
