Environmental Protection Overlay District (EPOD) Permit
There are several EPODs across the Town that are subject to specific requirements given the sensitivity of the environmental area that they are in. Any construction, clearing, stripping, etc. that is to be completed in these areas is subject to both Town and (potentially) NYSDEC approval.
Please reach out to the Engineering Department to see if you are in and EPOD and are subject to an EPOD permit.
Town Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) Permit
Any land disturbance activities (e.g. clearing, construction, grading, etc.) that disturbs between 25,000 square feet and 1 acre of land require a Town SWPPP permit. This permit ensures soil and other contaminants do not migrate offsite, which helps maintain the health of our waterways, and helps with compliance of the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4). Any construction activity disturbing 1 acre and above will require a NYSDEC SWPPP permit, which is also subject to Town review.
This application should be used for Town SWPPP permits only.
Please contact the engineering department for further information if you are in need of the NYSDEC SWPPP permit.
