Town/Village of East Rochester

Stormwater Management

The Town/ Village of East Rochester, as part of the Monroe County Stormwater Coalition, has developed and maintains a stormwater management plan (SWMP). The Town/Village meets regularly with the other 29 members of the coalition to review and address stormwater concerns. The Town/ Village is committed to implementing best management practices, providing and offering training, and implementing projects to improve water quality and reduce stormwater runoff. The SWMP includes six minimum control measures to help improve water quality which are listed below: 

  • Public education & outreach
  • Public participation 
  • Control of illicit discharges – detection & elimination 
  • Construction site erosion control measures 
  • Post-construction stormwater treatment 
  • Pollution prevention at municipal facilities 
NYSDEC classifies stormwater pollution as sediment, bacteria, fertilizers, pesticides, automotive fluids, and other materials that are washed from surfaces such as parking lots, roads, roofs, and construction sites during a rain storm or snow melt. The curbs, gutters, storm drains, pipes, and ditches help to transport these pollutants to Irondequoit Creek and other tributaries.

**VOLUNTEERS NEEDED**

The Monroe County Soil & Water Conservation District is looking for morning volunteers to help remove invasive species along Irondequoit Creek at Legion Eyer Park in the Town of East Rochester! All along the streambank the invasive vine, Oriental Bittersweet, is present and as part of a larger park enhancement project, the District will be cutting and pulling the vine from the bank. Volunteers will be needed to help cut, pull, and bag the vine. This is the perfect opportunity for local scout groups, school clubs, residents, and more to come out and learn about streambank erosion, buffers, Irondequoit Creek, water quality, and gain overall knowledge of your local natural resources. Removal should only take a few hours and will preferably be done between the hours of 9:00 am and 12:00 pm. Tentatively, we are looking at a morning the week of June 13th or June 27th, 2022. Interested individuals should email JacobKearney@monroecounty.gov or JamesSroka@monroecounty.gov with their availability.
