*A municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4) is a publicly-owned conveyance or system of conveyances (including but not limited to streets, ditches, catch basins, curbs, gutters, and storm drains) that is designed or used for collecting or conveying stormwater and that discharges to surface waters of the State. The City of New York received its first citywide MS4 permit on August 1, 2015. This permit is required under the Clean Water Act and is issued by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC). The intent of the MS4 permit is to manage urban sources of stormwater runoff to protect and improve water quality. In compliance with the MS4 Permit the City is developing a comprehensive Stormwater Management Program (SWMP) which is due to NYSDEC on August 1, 2018.
