DEC’s Best Practices for Managing Combined Sewer Overflows

The Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) enforces the combined sewer overflow requirements under the Wet Weather Water Quality Act of 2000. The DEC has developed 15 Best Management Practices. The Best Management Practices are technology-based controls, designed to implement operation and maintenance procedures, utilize the existing treatment facility and collection system to the maximum extent practicable, and implement sewer design, replacement and drainage planning, to maximize pollutant capture and minimize water quality impacts from combined sewer overflows.  The general permit requirements for these practices include:  CSO Maintenance and inspection, maximum use of collection system for storage, a wet weather operating plan which maximizes treatment during wet weather events, combined sewer/extension which, when allowable, should be accomplished using separate sewers. The permittee will be required to submit an annual report summarizing implementation. It is also recommended that the impacts of run-off from development and re-development in areas served by combined sewers be reduced by requiring compliance with the New York Standards for Erosion and Sediment Control.  As well as, the quantity control requirements included in the New York State Storm Water Management Design Manual.  This provides designers with a general overview on how to size, design, select, and locate storm water management practices at a development site to comply with state storm water performance standards.
