The MS4 Stormwater Management Program & Plan: Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination


The illicit discharge detection and elimination (IDDE) minimum control measure consists of best management practices (BMPs) and program elements that focus on finding and addressing non-stormwater discharges and/or non-permitted discharges that may be entering the municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4).


Regulated MS4s are required to establish plans to detect and eliminate illicit discharges including discharges not composed entirely of stormwater. They must map all outfalls from the storm sewer system to surface waters (not only from pipes, but also from road ditches, swales and other stormwater carriers), and must inform public employees and the community about the hazards of illegal discharges and improper waste disposal. Further, illicit discharges to the storm sewer system must be prohibited by ordinance or regulation, and the prohibition must be enforced.


The MS4 is required to develop and maintain a map showing: the location of all outfalls and the names and location of all surface waters of the State that receive discharges from those outfalls. By March 9, 2010, the preliminary boundaries of the permittee's storm sewersheds should be determined using GIS or other tools, even if they extend outside of the urbanized area. This will help facilitate trackdown of illicit discharges. When grant funds are made available, a map of the sewer lines and storm sewer system should be completed.


The MS4 is required to field verify outfall locations and conduct an outfall reconnaissance inventory that addresses every outfall within the MS4 designated area at least once every five years.


An IDDE program should also address non-stormwater discharges, including illegal dumping. The program must include: procedures for identifying priority areas of concern (geographic, audiences, or otherwise); a description of priority areas of concern, available equipment, staff, funding, etc.; procedures for identifying and locating illicit discharges (trackdown); procedures for eliminating illicit discharges; and procedures for documenting actions.


In certain areas that have current Watershed Improvement Strategies and/or Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) requirements, the regulated community may also be required to undertake additional activities such as: completing entire system mapping by January 8, 2013; and developing an on-site wastewater system inspection, maintenance and rehabilitation program (including the necessary legal authority to enforce the program). The details associated with these additional requirements are further described, and should be referenced, in the SPDES General Permit for Stormwater Discharges from MS4s.


Selected Activities and BMPs:


To meet the IDDE program requirements, the MS4 has selected the following Best Management Practices (BMP's) and activities to ensure the reduction of all pollutants of concern in stormwater discharges to the maximum extent practicable.

Outfall Mapping

Description of BMP/Activity: Create and maintain a map of all storm sewer system outfalls and identify the names of receiving waterbodies. The map will identify each outfall with a unique identifier and will link the outfall to a table of outfall properties collected See PDF file below for stormwater outfall locations in the Village of Oriskany.

Field Verify Outfall Locations


Description of BMP/Activity: Field verify outfall locations to insure they exist and are still a functioning part of the storm sewer system. During this activity, previously unknown outfalls may be identified. This task may also relate to activities conducted as part of the "Outfall Mapping" and/or "Outfall Reconnaissance Inventory". The previous outfall inventory for the Village of Oriskany uncovered 15 outfall locations. In June of 2020, an updated inventory was undertaken that identified 2 additional outfall locations. The new outfall reconnaissance inventory now brings the total to 17 outfalls location sites. No illicit discharges were discovered at any of these sites.

Septic System Program


Description of BMP/Activity: In areas that lack community-wide sanitary sewer service, a "Septic System Management Program" is often used to evaluate individual septic systems to detect whether the system is failing or discharging (directly or indirectly) to the stormwater system. Indirect discharges may include leakage on ground surfaces or leaking pipes. Direct discharges may involve straight pipe discharges to streams or ditches. Activities that may be part of a program include but are not necessarily limited to: homeowner surveys, surface condition analysis, and/or a detailed septic system inspection. Not applicable in the Village of Oriskany since septic systems are not allowed with Village limits.

Dye/Smoke Testing


Description of BMP/Activity: Dye testing and/or smoke testing generally assist in the detection and tracking of illicit discharges and help to pin-point the exact source of the discharge. These techniques involve flushing non-toxic dye or injecting non-toxic smoke into storm sewer lines or other features, then noting the presence of the indicator in illegal connections, cracks, outfalls, etc. Smoke testing on the sanitary sewer system was conducted in the Village in the Fall 2009.

Combined Sewer and/or Sanitary Sewer Overflow Program


Description of BMP/Activity: Develop and implement a program to manage the effect of excess stormwater runoff on sanitary and/or combined sewer overflows. Specific types of activities may include, but are not necessarily limited to: survey and corrective measures for inflow and infiltration, identification of storm water connections to sanitary sewer systems, infrastructure replacement, etc The Village of Oriskany is included in the Oneida County Sewer District, which has a Inflow/Infiltration Offest Plan to reduce the amount of stormwater that enters the sanitary sewer system. A consent order has been issued by the New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation, which mandates that any new sewer connection must be offest by inflow or infiltration reduction in the amount of five times what the new connection is expected to contribute. This has been done in order to curtail the outfall of combined stormwater/sanitary discharges into surficial bodies of water. Sanitary and Stormwater infrastructure improvements were made to the Village's existing sewer system in 2009 which have enabled the Village to receive storm sewer credits that enable present and future connections to the sanitary system while preserving the water quality of nearby surface waters.

Non-Stormwater Discharges


Description of BMP/Activity: Evaluate and update lists of non-stormwater discharges to insure that no exempt discharge is a substantial contributor of pollutants to the storm sewer system. The Village of Oriskany need not address the following catrgories of non-stormwater discharges unless the municipal engineer later identifies them as significant contributors of pollution:

  • Irrigation Water

  • Footing/Foundation Drains

  • Basement/Crawl Space Sump Pump Water

  • Individual Residential Car Washing

  • Street Wash Water

  • Discharges from Firefighting Activities

  • Dechlorinated Swimming Pool Discharges

  • Discharges from Potable Water Sources

  • Air Conditioning Condensation

  • Flows from Riparian Habitats and Wetlands

  • Waterline Flushing

Measurable Goals:

Regulated communities are required to collect and report information about the development and implementation of their stormwater program. Specific information that the MS4 is required to collect is generally included in the Annual Report and may also be reflected in related Self-Assessments (as applicable). MS4s are also required to identify "Measurable Goals" that will help them evaluate accomplishments and progress over time. The following "Measurable Goals" have been specifically identified for this Minimum Control Measure:

  • Percent completion of outfall mapping: 100

  • Percent completion of system mapping: 100

  • Delineation of stormwater sewersheds: Not yet completed

  • Number and percent of outfalls mapped: 17 outfalls mapped

  • Percent of outfalls for which an outfall reconnaissance inventory has been performed: 100

  • Percent of outfalls inspected each year: 100

  • Number of illicit discharges detected: 0

  • Number of Illicit discharges addressed, corrected or eliminated: 0

  • Adoption and enforcement of local IDDE law or ordinance: Yes

Copies of these documents can be found under the heading "Program Reporting and Effectiveness". A summary of the effectiveness of this program, associated BMPs, activities and an assessment of measurable goals can also be found under the heading "Program Reporting and Effectiveness".
