Public Comments for Snow Disposal TOGS 5.1.11

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) - Division of Water has developed a Technical and Operational Guidance Series (TOGS) document 5.1.11, "Snow Disposal", which is now available for public review.

TOGS 5.1.11 is a document developed by NYS DEC to provide guidance with the practice disposal of snow, upland disposal of snow is preferred. If upland disposal is not an option, best management practices that address how and where snow is collected and loaded can minimize the discharge of pollutants associated with snow disposal.

This project is an Unlisted Action under the State Environmental Quality Review Act. A Negative Declaration and Environmental Assessment form are on file with the NYS DEC - Division of Water.
