NYC Local Law Int 1851-2020: NYC plumbing code and the NYC building code in relation to city-wide stormwater management controls

This local law amends the administrative code, the plumbing code and the building code as it pertains to construction projects intended to reduce the flow of stormwater and waterborne pollutants into sewers that empty directly into the waters of the state or overflow into such waters due to rain or snowmelt events that exceed the capacity of the wastewater treatment plants. This local law is also intended to address the city municipal separate storm sewer system. For MS4 projects, this local law will ensure that the rules for such projects are not less stringent than the NYC MS4 permit and the NYSDEC Construction general permit.
