Princeton Introduces Updated Stormwater Ordinance

The Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association applauds the Princeton Council for voting unanimously to advance a new stormwater runoff ordinance last night.

Stormwater runoff is believed to be the number one source of water pollution in our region, but towns can take action to address this problem. The new stormwater ordinance introduced by the Princeton Council will help address flooding problems and reduce the amount of pollution discharged into its waters, including Lake Carnegie.

The Watershed Association is pleased to have worked with the Princeton Environmental Commission, the council, mayor and the engineering staff for the last ten months. For more information about this issue, read “Watershed Recommends Changes to Stormwater Ordinances“.  The Watershed looks forward to working with the government, residents, schools and businesses of Princeton to implement the new ordinance and other recommended measures to address the runoff problem.
