Stormwater Management and Erosion & Sediment Control

Stormwater management is a major and growing challenge, with stormwater pollution, flooding and other impacts imposing serious impacts on water quality, public health. At the same time, managing stormwater over the long term can create opportunities for communities to rediscover rainwater as a resource, invest in resilient infrastructure, revitalize urban waterways and introduce green space that makes communities more livable. Problems associated with construction activities, like soil erosion,  flooding, stream channel damage, decreased ground water storage, slope failures, and damage to adjacent or downstream properties can be successfully minimized by implementing erosion and sediment control measures on construction sites.

Chapter 80C of the Town of Goshen Code entitled “STORMWATER MANAGEMENT AND EROSION AND SEDIMENT CONTROL” establishes minimum stormwater management requirements and erosion controls to protect and safeguard the general health, safety, and welfare of the public residing within the Town of Goshen.
