Lead Agency: New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) - Division of Water, Albany
Brief Description: Under a 2005 Consent Order with the NYS DEC, the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYC DEP) has prepared a Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) Waterbody/Watershed Facility Plan (WWFP) for the Bronx River that discharges to the East River. The WWFP outlines the work and investigations that have been done to-date and describes the current construction of several floatables collection facilities along the River. The WWFP is the first step in the process of meeting current water quality standards and was approved by NYS DEC on July 27, 2010. The WWFP, in Appendix B, contains the Responsiveness Summary with responses to comments and questions from the August 19, 2009 public meeting and written inquiries received by the NYS DEC. The Long Term Control Plan (LTCP), per the USEPA CSO Policy, will be prepared by the NYC DEP in the near future.
