Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4)

 Why Reduce Inflow & Infiltration?  

  • I&I can cause costly and dangerous sewer backups in your and your neighbors basements.
  • Creates sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs) in the environment which is prohibited by the Clean Water Act and can result in fines and penalties
  • Excess water uses capacity within the sewer system that could instead be used for economic growth
  • Water diverted to the sewer requires extra County resources, increasing sewer rates and complicating the big job of cleaning Onondaga Lake
