The City of New Rochelle constantly works on improving the performance of the City-owned stormwater system and also monitors privately-owned facilities including parking lots. Conditions of some 30 outflows discharging runoff waters to the Long Island Sound are checked, sporadically controlled, and some debris is intercepted to prevent pollution of receiving waters.
Property owners are required to control the discharge of stormwater onto the street. This is particularly important during the winter months where Department personnel are required to respond to icing conditions created by sump pump discharges. Property owners who discharge water onto the street, and create icing conditions that require salting by the Department, will be charged $25 per treatment.
