A latest MS4 (municipal separate storm sewer system) audit by the New York Division of Environmental Conservation (DEC) turned up eight deficiencies, Village of Saugerties Constructing and Security officer Eyal Saad reported on the village board common assembly on Could 15. The inspector visited the village and recognized the deficiencies, Saad mentioned, “which I’m working with division heads to appropriate.”

There are three potential rankings: passable, marginal and unsatisfactory, in response to Saad. “We received a ‘marginal,’ which is within the center, so we handed the audit with some issues, no large deal,” he mentioned.

Among the many deficiencies have been public schooling and outreach, mentioned Saad, who plans to arrange a stand on the Saugerties Farmers’ Market to distribute data. Different criticisms included the Village “spoil pile,” the place road sweepings are saved, and the salt shed. The issues will not be main and will likely be taken care of, he mentioned.
