ANNUAL VILLAGE STORMWATER REPORTS
The Village is required to file with the State DEC (Department of Environmental Conservation) an annual report summarizing the Village's efforts at minimizing stormwater runoff and preventing pollution of our stormwater in order to protect groundwater (important for drinking water and irrigation) and surface body of waters such as Long Island Sound. The Village's Annual Stormwater Report report is prepared and filed every spring by the Village's Environmental Protection Commissioner and presented at the Village's Board of Trustee's Meeting at that time.
Village residents are encouraged to review these reports (see links below) and provide any comments to the Board of Trustees and Environmental Protection Commissioner through the Shoreham Village Clerk (email@example.com. See home page for additional contact information.) Note that these reports are in pdf format and can be read with Adobe Reader-- free download available at www.adobe.com if you don't already have it.
