The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) has new regulations to prevent contamination of stormwater which apply to the Town of Evans. The regulations apply to specific areas of the municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4). This page includes a description of new laws the Town has enacted; links to the laws, the map of the regulated area, and other stormwater related documents and websites; a description of current permitted construction projects; and a form for comments or complaints on stormwater related items.
