Ninemile Creek Reaches AB and BC Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan
The clean up of Ninemile Creek is part of the effort to rehabilitate Onondaga Lake and adjacent properties. Ninemile Creek is one of the main tributaries to Onondaga Lake and is part of a complex system that provides habitat corridors to upstream wetlands and green areas. This system flows through the restored Linden Chemical and Plastics (LCP) wetlands, connects with the West Flume, flows into Geddes Brook and Ninemile Creek, and empties into Onondaga Lake.
This Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) covers work to be completed to develop temporary facilities and structures for the Reach AB and Reach BC portions of Ninemile Creek, pursuant to the Record of Decisions for Operable Units 1 and 2 of the Geddes Brook / Ninemile Creek Site. The SWPPP includes the following objectives:
- reduction or elimination of erosion and/or sediment loading to Ninemile Creek due to on-land remediation activities;
- identification and control of potential sources of sediment from stormwater runoff that may affect water quantity and quality; and
- identification of stormwater/erosion control features and procedures for implementing these features.
