Stormwater Issues

Suffolk County is taking major steps to reduce stormwater pollution to the maximum extent practicable. The Stormwater Management Program has many components including public education and participation, identification of stormwater inputs and monitoring, control of stormwater runoff from construction activities and pollution prevention training for County employees.

Reducing stormwater pollution is the best way to improve water quality now and in the future.
