 TOWN OF VICTOR

 These photos are of a detention pond installed by the Town of Victor.  A subdivision built in the late 1960's, with no retention facilities exists uphill from here.  During heavy rain events, stormwater from the upper subdivision would run down slope and cause flooding concerns for several new homes.

These pictures show the project towards the end of the rough construction phase.  Although it is functioning now and has eliminated any flooding issues, due to its close proximity to existing homes, complete restoration will include grassy areas and strategically placed pine trees around the rim.

Construction Site

Requirements:

If your project will disturb more than one acre of ground, you are required to:

1. Submit Notice of Intent (NOI) to NYSDEC to obtain a Stormwater General Permit.

You can request information that explains the permit requirements from either the Ontario County Soil and Water Conservation District, or NYSDEC.  Detailed permit information can be found at the NYSDEC Stormwater homepage:  www.dec.state.ny.us/website/dow/mainpage.htm

2. Have a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) and Follow it.

The SWPPP is the plan for controlling runoff and pollutants from a site during and after construction activities.  The SWPPP must be implemented in order to prevent any water quality violations.  Consult the most recent NYS Standards and Specifications (the Blue Book) and the NYS Stormwater Design Manual.

3. Certify Under Penalty of Law to follow the SWPPP

Landowner and contractors must sign a statement that they understand and agree to comply with the terms and conditions of the SWPPP.

4. Perform weekly inspections

The landowner must hire a qualified professional to perform weekly inspections of erosion and sediment control practices and after a 1/2 inch of rainfall, to determine the level of compliance to water quality standards and specifications in the SWPPP.

5. Maintain Erosion & Sediment Control Practices

Update SWPPP regularly.

6. Keep all SWPPP and Inspection Forms on the Construction Site in a Site Log Book

Make the information available to regulatory staff.
