Stormwater Management
The Town of Tonawanda is classified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Phase II rule as an operator of a small municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4s) based on our population and urban character. Subsequently, we are required to develop and implement a stormwater management program. Here in Western New York, similar communities have formed a WNY Stormwater Coalition which is coordinated by the Erie County Department of Environment and Planning, Environmental Compliance division.

The coalition works together in the WNY community to share resources and reduce the negative impacts of stormwater pollution.
