No New Discharge In Ward Cove
By Rob Holston
August 01, 2005
As I understand it there is a pending decision by the EPA and
DEC that a zero tolerance discharge policy for Ward Cove will
soon take effect. That means even upland development that creates
storm sewer type runoff from new buildings or parking lots would
not be allowed.
Because the Borough is selling
these Ward Cove parcels "as is", with no guarantees
about future use or development, the effect on the new owners
of these lands could be devastating. This new environmental ruling
would not allow ANY new outfall permits in all of Ward Cove.
Does that mean that we would have to rely on the Borough to eventually
provide sewer service to Ward Cove to legally take care of storm
water, grey water and sewer?
