On March 10, 2003, the Village of Mount Kisco began the development of its Stormwater Management Plan, mandated by the United States Department of Environmental Protection and administered by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. The plan requires that the Village make every effort to improve the water quality of its streams, lakes and rivers. The Village must implement six (6) minimum control measures including educating the public, soliciting participation and involvement of the public, detection and elimination of illicit discharges, control of construction site runoff, maintenance and operation of post construction structural Best Management Practices and pollution prevention and good housekeeping at municipal facilities.
Recognizing the need for improving the quality of our surface waters, the Village passed legislation in the initial stages of its Stormwater Management Program, designed to control the quantity and quality of runoff from new development and redevelopment, and insure that stormwater runoff from a project, once completed, created minimal or no impact on water quality. Mount Kisco has been a proponent of maintaining and improving water quality and is part of a municipal consortium working to improve water quality in the Saw Mill River, Kisco River, and New York City Water Supply.
