Annual MS4 Reports

Every year each MS4 must submit an Annual Report to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC).  The reporting period is March 10th to March 9th and reports must be submitted to NYSDEC by June 1st.  These Annual Reports show how the MS4 is complying with the requirements of the permit during that reporting period, and provide an assessment of the community’s program. Please contact your municipality for any further information on their Annual Report.
