COMBINED SEWER OVERFLOW (CSO) OUTFALL SIGN PROGRAM : EXPANDING THE ROLE OF DISCHARGE NOTIFICATION
Abstract:In response to the passage of the 1995 New York State Discharge Notification Act (DNA), also known as the “Fisherman's Right to Know Act”, the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYCDEP) embarked on an ambitious plan to accomplish the mandate. A multi-pronged program was initiated in order to enhance citizen education, involve local citizens, and work with the various entities in the public sector that would be affected by the program. The NYCDEP saw it as an opportunity to instruct citizens and use the public to identify problems, such as early notification of dry weather discharges.
