About the Film:

The Nassau County Soil and Water Conservation District and NYSDEC have produced an educational film; Stormwater Pollution and Green Infrastructure Solutions.  This film highlights stormwater runoff impacts throughout New York State and showcases several green infrastructure solutions to help mitigate these issues associated with stormwater runoff pollution. The goals of this film are to educate the public, municipal officials and developers about stormwater pollution and to encourage the use of green infrastructure, smart growth principles and best management practices to help curb these impacts.
New York State has some of the most developed areas in the US.  As a result, surfaces constructed with impervious materials like concrete and asphalt create large amounts of “dirty” stormwater runoff during precipitation events. After precipitation, stormwater runoff flows over these impervious surfaces collecting and transporting pollutants such as excess nutrients, litter, petrochemicals, and bacteria/pathogens from animal waste. Stormwater is then directly discharged into streams, lakes and bays via a Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4). The water quality of these receiving waterbodies is of major concern due to high concentrations of pollutants that are transported and deposited by stormwater runoff. This translates into real socioeconomic impacts to our region due to harmful algae blooms, fish kills, sediment erosion and beach closure due to bacterial contamination.
