As a result of comments received during the June 26, 2013 public comment period, the proposed draft permits have been revised, as described in the fact sheets. In general, the proposed changes are as follows: an asset management section has been added to the permits; the municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4) language has been removed from these permits in response to issuance of the New York City individual MS4 SPDES permit; an Additional CSO BMP Special Conditions section has been added to incorporate conditions specified in the CSO BMP Order into the draft permits; and the disinfection system upgrade schedules have been removed from the permits and will be addressed through a consent order.
