SAVE THE RAIN CLEAN THE LAKE SUBURBAN GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE PROGRAM ANNOUNCEMENT WHAT: Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney’s Save the Rain concept is expanding to the next level of implementation and success. Suburban green infrastructure program funding, in the amount of $3,000,000, will be available from Onondaga County for the abatement of sewer system overflows. WHY: The County is interested in working with the suburban communities in its sanitary sewer district to use green infrastructure to reduce inflow and infiltration into the sanitary sewer system. Green technologies such as bio-retention swales, porous pavements, tree plantings, rain barrels, and green roofs are all effective in the mitigation of problems associated with managing wet weather sewer capacity and also are typically much more beneficial to neighborhoods and communities than gray infrastructure improvements. WHERE: Green infrastructure projects in the following towns and villages will help to offset the costs associated with Onondaga County’s required compliance with the Onondaga Lake Cleanup Amended Consent Judgment. Projects utilizing green infrastructure will be considered from the following towns and villages: Towns:

Camillus, Cicero, Dewitt, Geddes, Lysander, Manlius, Onondaga, Pompey, and Salina. Villages: Baldwinsville, Camillus, East Syracuse, Fayetteville, Liverpool, Manlius, North Syracuse, and Solvay. WHEN: Project funding applications should be received by March 6, 2012. Onondaga County’s Save the Rain program is nationally recognized for its use of green infrastructure approaches to mitigate the harmful impacts of sanitary sewer overflows. It is anticipated that this suburban green infrastructure program will be both highly successful and most competitive. Municipal partners are encouraged to begin development of their applications early to generate projects of the highest quality for this exciting inter-municipal effort. APPLICATION DETAILS: Applications must include a short narrative description of the proposed project, cost estimates including the total project cost, and the proposed portion of the project to be paid by the County’s Save the Rain Suburban Grant Program. The narrative description should also describe the proposed location of the improvements (e.g. streets, neighborhoods, and sewer service areas), the estimated potential infiltration and inflow (I & I) capture by the project, and additional engineering or supporting materials available to better describe the benefits of the proposed project.


Applicants must also confirm their willingness to take full responsibility for the maintenance of the projects upon completion. PROJECT AWARD INFORMATION, PROCESS, AND BASIS: The projects will be reviewed and considered based upon a number of criteria including, but not limited to, total cost of the project; proposed share of County funding; gallons of capture per year; wet weather I & I constraints and conditions in the immediate sewer shed proposed to be improved by the projects; and mitigation of previously identified wet weather conditions which impair the community’s health, environment, or economy due to sanitary sewer overflows. All projects must be approved by the County Legislature after conceptual approval by the County Executive and the County Department of Water Environment Protection. SUBMITTAL DETAILS: A complete program description is available on the Save the Rain website (www.savetherain.us/green-projects) or from Paul Legnetto, Program Coordinator (plegnetto@ongov.net), or Tom Rhoads, WEP Commissioner (trhoads@ongov.net).


SAVE THE RAIN CLEAN THE LAKE Suburban Green Infrastructure Program $3,000,000 in Available Funds Program Description and Application

Onondaga County Department of Water Environment Protection Joanne M. Mahoney, County Executive Tom Rhoads, P.E., Commissioner January 2012 Applications Due: March 6, 2012

1

Background Onondaga County’s Save the Rain Program and the Department of Water Environment Protection (WEP) are sponsoring the Suburban Green Infrastructure Program (SGIP), a grant program to provide financial incentives for the installation of green infrastructure projects. Projects must be located within the Onondaga County sanitary sewer district. This program will supplement the highly successful Save the Rain program investments already underway in the City of Syracuse, with programming focused on projects outside the city to control stormwater runoff and inflow and infiltration into the sanitary sewer system. Green infrastructure projects include, but are not limited to, bioswales, cisterns, green roofs, planter boxes, porous pavement, rain gardens, tree trenches, and underground infiltration systems as an aspect of the development or redevelopment and/or retrofitting of certain classes of municipally-owned properties in the Onondaga County sanitary sewer district outside the City of Syracuse city limits.

2.

Eligibility An eligible municipality within the Onondaga County sanitary sewer district proposing to undertake a project to reduce inflow and infiltration to the sanitary sewer system can apply for a SGIP grant. An “owner” is defined as any municipal entity that can provide evidence to Onondaga County of a fee-simple title to the public property to be improved-with the exception of potential rain barrel retention projects which may be utilized in conjunction with private property. All eligible projects must be on municipally-owned property within the Onondaga County sewer system.

3.

Eligible Project Reimbursement Costs for a SGIP Grant Eligible reimbursement expenses include: 

Design and engineering costs, as furnished by a New York State licensed design professional (architect, landscape architect, or professional engineer) for specific green infrastructure measures for the property

Labor and material construction costs to modify the site and install green infrastructure for the purpose of inflow and infiltration reduction that exceeds the threshold stormwater capture requirements made applicable by state or local municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4) permit requirements.

All projects funded through this program shall comply with any and all environmental laws and applicable permits. The owner applicant is responsible for obtaining all applicable permits before construction. Onondaga County will review all plans and specifications and verify that the proposed incorporation of green infrastructure will reduce stormwater runoff beyond what is required by state and local MS4 permit requirements. This review is required before construction begins for the project to remain eligible for reimbursement. No funding is guaranteed prior to full review and approval by the County, including approval by the Onondaga County Legislature.

4.

Application Process The SGIP application process will be administered in rounds of funding with the first round of application submissions due by March 6, 2012. A project owner seeking SGIP funds must complete a SGIP application form and submit all required documents, including the SGIP application checklist, to: ATTN: SGIP Application c/o Paul Legnetto Onondaga County WEP 7120 Henry Clay Blvd. Liverpool, NY 13088

5.

Available Funding Eligible applicants can receive up to 100 percent of the eligible costs associated with the implementation of green infrastructure components for projects, with a minimum single project assistance of $50,000 and a maximum single project assistance of $500,000. Final award determination will be based on the amount of stormwater reduction (measured by gallons captured) achieved through implementation of the green infrastructure solution and the inflow and infiltration conditions related to impaired wet-weather sewer capacity. The SGIP committee will review infiltration conditions related to impaired wetweather sewer capacity. The SGIP committee will review the project scope and analyze the amount of impervious area being managed through green infrastructure with established award levels based on the quantity of annual stormwater capture. Applicants should strive to be as cost-effective as possible in the development of the project. The SGIP committee will consider cost-effectiveness as a criterion in determining grant awards; however, this will not be the only consideration (see selection criteria section for a full list of considerations). Grant funding will only cover costs for the installation of green infrastructure solutions above and beyond traditional (nongreen) construction practices, including design and engineering costs and construction costs. All grants shall be on a reimbursement basis and awarded after the green infrastructure has been installed and verified by WEP, proof of payments and expenditures has been provided, and all other requirements for funding have been met. Projects shall have a minimum total stormwater reduction of at least 100,000 gallons captured annually (based on 39.5� of rainfall annually) through green infrastructure enhancements to be eligible for funding, and said stormwater reduction will reduce inflow and infiltration into the Onondaga County sanitary sewer system.

6.

Selection Criteria for Green Infrastructure Projects Onondaga County will select projects that meet SGIP program goals based on selection criteria. Project decisions and the level of funding for selected SGIP projects rest solely with the Onondaga County Department of Water Environment Protection. Upon conceptual approval by the department, each project must be specifically approved by the Onondaga County Legislature.

Page 3 of 11


Selection of grant recipients will be based on the following considerations:  Completeness and accuracy of the application  Location, extent, and/or size of the project  Potential volume and effectiveness of runoff reduction  Amount of surface area managed by green infrastructure  Overall cost effectiveness of the project  Location and visibility of the project for educational purposes  Inclusion of an effective maintenance plan. Recommendations on awards shall be made within ninety (90) calendar days of receipt of a completed application. Time spent by WEP obtaining necessary application information will extend the approval process by the number of days information is outstanding. Green infrastructure portion of awarded projects must be constructed within 2 calendar years of signed contract date. 7.

Construction and Monitoring Requirements Applicants shall comply with all state and local laws. Grantees must allow WEP and its representatives access to the site to monitor volume capture pursuant to the life of the contract between the County and SGIP project owner. The owner agrees to allow the County use of photos of the project in various stages of completion for promotional purposes and placement on the county website. The owner shall provide qualified inspection and professional certification for the installation of all green infrastructure components.

8.

Other Requirements for Receiving SGIP Funding A. Cost Each applicant must complete and sign a detailed statement which outlines specific costs of green infrastructure improvements. Projects that include additional infrastructure construction work beyond green infrastructure improvements should demonstrate how the green infrastructure portion of the project relates to the overall scope of work. B.

Inflow and Infiltration (I & I) Relationship to Sanitary Sewer In addition, the applicant shall provide a detailed contour/topographic drainage plan depicting the existing surface area tributary to the sewer system as it relates to the applicant’s parcel and the inflow/infiltration identified. The applicant shall also provide a proposed drainage plan (via conceptual diagram or map) indicating how much of the existing inflow and infiltration—once tributary to the sanitary sewer— will be removed and diverted to the proposed green infrastructure or pretreated separated discharge. The drainage plan must include a description of ground cover characteristics indicating impervious (non-porous) and pervious (porous) cover types. A calculation of total impervious cover type and pervious cover type removed from the sewer system must be provided. If available, the proposed drainage plan should be provided to WEP in digital format.

10. Green Infrastructure Technology Definitions a. Rain Gardens are shallow surface depressions planted with specially selected native vegetation to treat and capture stormwater runoff and are sometimes underlain by sand or a gravel storage/infiltration bed. A rain garden is a method of managing stormwater by pooling water within a planting area and then allowing the water to either infiltrate into the surrounding soil or evapotranspire. In addition to managing runoff volume and mitigating peak discharge rates, this process filters suspended solids and related pollutants from stormwater runoff. b. Bioretention (also known as vegetated swales or bioswales) are area wide, shallow channels with a dense stand of vegetation covering the side, slopes, and bottom. Bioretention swales can be natural or constructed and are designed to promote infiltration, reduce the flow velocity of stormwater runoff, and maximize the amount of time water spends in the swale, which also aids in trapping particulate pollutants and silt. Bioretention swales are commonly used around parking lots. c. Dry Wells, also referred to as seepage pits, are subsurface storage facilities (structural chambers or excavated pits backfilled with a course aggregate or alternative storage media) that temporarily store and infiltrate stormwater runoff from rooftops. Due to their size, dry wells are typically designed to handle stormwater runoff from smaller drainage areas (less than one acre in size). d. Underground Infiltration Systems generally consist of a rock storage (or alternative) bed below surfaces such as parking lots, lawns, and playfields for temporary storage and infiltration of stormwater runoff with a maximum drainage area of 10 acres.

Page 5 of 11


e. Porous Pavement (also known as pervious paving or permeable pavement), is a term used to describe paving material and methods for driveways, parking lots, sidewalks, and pathways that allow stormwater runoff to infiltrate through the paving material to the soil below. Porous paving materials available include: porous asphalt, porous concrete, porous pavers or bricks, and other proprietary materials produced using a stone aggregate and a binding product. f. Tree Plantings are beneficial to stormwater management and may be eligible elements of a project; this item is intended to include simple tree plantings – from small container trees to larger bulbed and burlaped or even bare root trees. Applicants must identify caliper and species to allow evaluation for reimbursement. g. Tree Trenches are designed to hold one or more trees and are built to capture and store additional stormwater to keep runoff out of streets and sewers and provide water for the trees. They can be connected to a building downspout system or placed along streets or between streets and sidewalks. Tree trenches may include amended soils, aggregate for storage and infiltration, perforated pipe for distribution, and geotextile lining to enclose the trench and are more sophisticated than simple tree plantings. h. Planter Boxes are deep planting boxes that receive roof runoff, releasing it to a storm drain conveyance system, cistern, or infiltrating into groundwater. Tree planter boxes can be raised or flush with the surrounding landscape. Vegetation in the planter usually is comprised of perennials and/or small shrubs. Planter boxes are generally not recommended for treatment of road or parking lot runoff. i. Cistern Systems are large receptacles for holding stormwater runoff that are connected to a storm drain collection system on a nearby building or structure. Rainwater can be stored in the cisterns and may be reused to water gardens and lawns. Cisterns may range in capacity from fifty gallons to thousands of gallons. j. Added Green Space refers to the removal of existing impervious/paved areas and replacing it with pervious/unpaved ground cover, allowing stormwater to infiltrate to groundwater rather than surface flowing into storm drains tied to the combined sewer system. l. Rain Barrels may also be used to hold stormwater runoff from residential dwellings. Rain barrel programs, managed through the oversight of the municipality, are the only projects in the grant program that may be approved for private property. 11. Minimum Green Infrastructure Maintenance Requirements As part of acceptance of the SGIP grant, the grantee/owner will be responsible for proper maintenance of the green infrastructure installed. The grantee/owner will also agree to protect the effective operation and efficient function of green infrastructure so

GRAY PROJECTS UPDATE


Gray Projects Update Progress of Projects Under Construction Harbor Brook Interceptor Sewer (HBIS) Replacement and CSO Abatement Project (Construction Phase) No work was completed in January 2011 as the contractor was on a month-long shutdown. Work will commence again in February. To date the project has installed 7,503 LF of new 18” to 36” interceptor sewer between Velasko Road and West Fayette Street on the west side of Syracuse. In addition, 5,222 LF of new local sewers was installed, ranging in size from 8” to 42” in diameter. The sewer installation is 99 percent completed, and the project, overall, is approximately 92 percent complete. The project is anticipated to be completed by July 2012. Midland CSO 044 Abatement Project (Construction Phase) Construction continued on the 96” CSO conveyance pipeline that will connect CSO 044 in South Avenue to the Midland RTF. In January the contractor continued to backfill the pipe trench and Flushing Chamber A. All work, including restoration, is anticipated to be complete in June of 2012. Clinton CSO Storage Facility Project (Construction Phase) In January the contractor continued construction activities associated with the storage facility that will collect 6 million gallons of combined sewage from 8 downtown Syracuse CSOs during wet weather events. The contractor continued installation of the north side cut off wall, the slurry walls for the East Chamber, jet columns for the West Chamber, and the steel sheeting for the 84” overflow at the West Chamber. In addition, the removal of parking lot CSO utilities continued as well as the water hydrant installation within the lot. Lower Harbor Brook CSO Conveyance Project (Construction Phase) The contractor completed the site clearing and grubbing and installation of the temporary construction fencing. Construction of the pipelines will begin in February. The project will transit combined sewage from CSO 003 (Hiawatha Boulevard) and CSO 004 (State Fair Boulevard) to the new storage facility to be constructed on State Fair Boulevard and from CSO 063 in the future. Lower Harbor Brook CSO Storage Facility Project (Construction Phase) The contractor continued to mobilize equipment on site and submit shop drawings during the month of January. Construction activities will commence in February. The storage facility will store combined sewage from CSOs 003, 004, and 063 during storm events and transmit the sewage after the storm to Metro via the HBIS. CSO 022/045 Sewer Separation Project (Bid Phase) The general and plumbing contracts were executed in January and the Notice to Proceed was issued for both contracts on January 23, 2012. Construction activities will commence in February. The project will provide for the separation of sanitary and storm flow in CSO areas 022 (located in downtown Syracuse near West Genesee and Franklin streets) and 045 (located just west of South Avenue near Onondaga Creek. Once complete, the discharge of combined sewage from these two basins will be eliminated, and all sanitary sewage will be transmitted to Metro via the Main Interceptor Sewer (MIS).

Project Description: The Clinton CSO Storage Facility Project is a 6 million gallon combined sewer overflow storage facility that will be constructed in the parking area between the elevated rail tracks and Onondaga Creek just south of the Armory Square area of downtown Syracuse (formerly known as the Trolley Lot). During wet weather events, the facility’s three, parallel 18-foot diameter, underground storage tunnels will capture flow from 8 combined sewer overflows (CSOs) in the vicinity of the former Trolley Lot. The wastewater will be stored in the tunnels until it can be conveyed via the main interceptor sewer to the Syracuse Metropolitan Sewage Treatment Plant (Metro) for treatment. The off-site conveyance piping, which will transmit the flow to the facility, was installed under the Clinton CSO Phase 1 and 2A conveyances projects completed in 2009. There will be additional on-site conveyance piping installed under this project to connect the existing sewers to the new facility. In addition to the tunnels there will be two above ground structures located at either end (east and west) of the parking lot which provide access to the tunnels and house the pumping, grit collection and odor control facilities Green Components: To further enhance the sustainability of the facility, the project includes green infrastructure components. The stormwater runoff from the entire site that measures approximately 275,000 square feet or 6.3 acres will be managed by green infrastructure. The stormwater from the area surrounding the main structure on the western half of the site will be collected by a series of catch basins and stormwater piping that will outfall into two bioretention basins. The bioretention basins will allow the stormwater to infiltrate into the ground rather than immediately runoff to the creek. In addition, stormwater runoff from the eastern half of the project site, to be restored as a parking area, will be directed to a subsurface collection facility and used to flush the storage tunnels to clear them of grit and debris that may have settled or been left behind after the stored combined sewage was transmitted to Metro. In addition, a green roof will be installed on the west building. Construction Update: In January the contractor continued construction activities associated with the storage facility that will collect 6 million gallons of combined sewage from 8 downtown Syracuse CSOs during wet weather events. The contractor continued installation of the north side cut off wall, the slurry walls for the East Chamber, jet columns for the West Chamber, and the steel sheeting for the 84� overflow at the West Chamber. In addition, the removal of parking lot CSO utilities continued as well as the water hydrant installation within the lot.

Project Description: In 2000, the separations of 13 separate CSO basins were designed to the 95 percent stage. The CSO areas represented basins whose full separation would be cost effective compared to other CSO abatement technologies. The remaining basins where the full separation has not been constructed were CSO areas 022 and 045. CSO area 022 is located in downtown Syracuse and the tributary sewers are located in North Franklin, West Genesee, and Willow streets. The proposed work to be performed includes 2,000 linear feet (LF) of new sanitary sewer; 800 LF of sewer lining; and twenty (20) internal building separations. CSO Area 045 is located south of downtown Syracuse with the outfall at the intersection of West Castle Street, Hudson Street, and Onondaga Creek. The combined sewage tributary to this outfall is conveyed by combined sewers located in Crescent and Hudson streets. The proposed work to be performed includes: 700 LF of new storm sewer in Hudson and Crescent streets, 1200 LF of sewer lining to convert the existing combined sewers in Crescent and Hudson streets to sanitary sewers, rehabilitation of the existing sanitary sewer in Rich Street between Hudson and Onondaga Creek, and one (1) private property separation. Green Components: The County has successfully applied its “Greening the Gray� mission to the project through the implementation of Green Infrastructure as it related to the reconstruction of the Pocket Park on the corner of West Genesee and North Clinton Streets. The park had fallen into disrepair due to settlement issues and will be rehabilitated with green components under the CSO 022 project. Project Update: The general and plumbing contracts were executed in January and the Notice to Proceed was issued for both contracts on January 23, 2012. Construction activities will commence in February. The project will provide for the separation of sanitary and storm flow in CSO areas 022 (located in downtown Syracuse near West Genesee and Franklin streets) and 045 (located just west of South Avenue near Onondaga Creek. Once complete, the discharge of combined sewage from these two basins will be eliminated, and all sanitary sewage will be transmitted to Metro via the Main Interceptor Sewer (MIS). .

Project Description The CSO 044 Conveyances Project provides for the transmission of wet weather flow from CSO 044, which discharges to Onondaga Creek at South Avenue and West Castle Street, to the Midland Regional Treatment Facility (RTF) on the south side of Syracuse. Conveyance of the combined sewer flow to the Midland RTF will be via approximately 500 linear feet of 96-inch diameter pipeline between the terminus of the 144-inch pipeline installed under the Midland Phase Two RTF and Conveyances Project to CSO 044. Green Components: In addition to the pipeline, the project will include the construction of a new regulator structure in South Avenue, and two conveyance flushing chambers. The “Greening the Gray” components incorporated include the utilization of captured stormwater for the flushing chambers, the installation of rain gardens for stormwater infiltration, and an educational interpretive walkway. Project Update: Construction continued on the 96” CSO conveyance pipeline that will connect CSO 044 in South Avenue to the Midland RTF. In January, the contractor continued to backfill the pipe trench and Flushing Chamber A. A partial certificate of substantial completion was issued for the completed work in December 2011. All work on this project, including restoration, is anticipated to be complete in June of 2012. .

HBIS Replacement & CSO Abatement Onondaga County Harbor Brook Corridor Fayette St. to Velasko Rd. Harbor Brook Interceptor Replacement 36,000,000 gal/yr 9 6/30/2012 $21,536,849 11/2/09 J.J. Lane Construction

Project Description: The HBIS Replacement Project provides for a much needed upgrade to the existing Harbor Brook Interceptor between West Fayette Street and Velasko Road on the west side of Syracuse. This length of the interceptor sewer conveys dry weather flow and a portion of the combined flow from CSOs 009, 010, 011, 013, 014, 015, 016, 017, and 018 for conveyance to Metro for treatment. The existing interceptor is a U-shaped cast-in-place concrete pipe constructed in the 1920s and has fallen into disrepair. Due to the shape and age of the HBIS, flow restrictions have developed which have decreased capacity and increased infiltration in some areas. The project includes the installation of 7,600 linear feet (LF) of new HBIS ranging in size from 18- to 36-inches in diameter, 1,500 LF of new local sewers, rehabilitation of 860 LF of 30-inch brick sewer, installation of 4 new regulator manholes, and rehabilitation or replacement of 2500 LF of Harbor Brook Culvert. In addition, during construction the available funding allowed CSO Areas 013 and 016 to be completely separated which will increase CSO capture and eliminate two CSO discharge points. As a result, the capture projection for this project is anticipated to be 0.9 percent or 36 million gallons. Green Components: In addition the County has successfully applied its “Greening the Gray” mission to the HBIS Replacement Project. The GI components incorporated into this gray construction project include the installation of approximately 40 enhanced tree basins with infiltration zones and the construction of a bioretention area that will manage stormwater runoff from an area of approximately 3.2 acres. The enhanced tree basins will be located on Hartson, Herriman and Hoeffler Streets in the Skunk City area of Syracuse. The bioretention area will be located at the corner of Grand Avenue and Delaware Street and will contain a series of rain gardens and bioretention swales which will collect offsite runoff from impervious areas and manage the on-site stormwater as well. The site will have a “parklike” setting with an educational theme. Construction Update: No work was completed in January 2011 as the contractor was on a month-long shutdown. Work will commence again in February. To date the project has installed 7,503 LF of new 18” to 36” interceptor sewer between Velasko Road and West Fayette Street on the west side of Syracuse. In addition, 5,222 LF of new local sewers was installed, ranging in size from 8” to 42” in diameter. The sewer installation is 99 percent completed, and the project, overall, is approximately 92 percent complete. The project is anticipated to be completed by July 2012.

Lower Harbor Brook CSO Conveyances & Storage Onondaga County State Fair Blvd., Syracuse Harbor Brook Underground Tank 4,900,000 gallons 55,000,000 gal/yr 3 12/31/13 Conveyances – $4,147,888 Storage – $25,039,101 Conveyances – 8/30/11 Storage – 10/18/11 Conveyances – J.J. Lane Storage – C.O. Falter

Project Description: The Lower Harbor Brook CSO Conveyances and Storage Facility Project is a 4.9 million gallon combined sewer overflow storage facility that will be located on County owned property on State Fair Boulevard between Hiawatha Blvd. and West Genesee Street in the City of Syracuse. The facility will capture and store the overflows from CSOs 003, 004 and 063 for up to the 1-year, 2-hour design storm event. After the storm event subsides, the contents of the storage tank will be pumped to the existing Harbor Brook Interceptor Sewer for conveyance to the Metropolitan Treatment Plant (Metro) for full treatment. The project also includes construction of CSO conveyance pipelines on State Fair Blvd., Hiawatha Blvd., and Erie Blvd. to convey combined sewage from the overflow regulators to the storage tanks during rainfall and snowmelt events. Floatables and grit removal will be included in this facility. Odor control provisions will be incorporated into the facility design and the tank will be completely enclosed. Green Components: To further enhance the sustainability of the facility, the project includes green infrastructure components. The stormwater runoff from the rooftops of the storage tank and controls building will be stored within the CSO storage tank and used for a second and third cleaning flush of the tank. This water will ultimately be treated at Metro eliminating the need for this stormwater to be treated on-site. The stormwater storage is designed to capture the 100-year storm (5.2 inches) from the tank and the control building rooftop. Project Update: For the Lower Harbor Brook Conveyances, the contractor completed the site clearing and grubbing and installation of the temporary construction fencing. Construction of the pipelines will begin in February. The project will transit combined sewage from CSO 003 (Hiawatha Boulevard) and CSO 004 (State Fair Boulevard) to the new storage facility to be constructed on State Fair Boulevard and from CSO 063 in the future. On the Lower Harbor Brook Storage Facility, the contractor continued to mobilize equipment on site and submit shop drawings during the month of January. Construction activities will commence in February. The storage facility will store combined sewage from CSOs 003, 004, and 063 during storm events and transmit the sewage after the storm to Metro via the HBIS.

GREEN PROJECTS UPDATE


Green Projects Update

The 2011 construction season laid a great foundation for 2012. With 60 projects advanced last year, we now focus our attention to the upcoming 2012 season. Planning efforts for 2012 project implementation is well underway. Several projects identified in 2011 that did not progress to the construction phase will be the first wave of projects in 2012. For example, the Atrium Garage Stormwater Cistern project will be one of the first projects this year. The cistern has been ordered and is expected to be installed in February. The Onondaga County Public Library projects (at Beauchamp, Hazard, Mundy, Petit, and White branch libraries) are also included in the first group for 2012. Design changes on these projects will be finalized in early February and they are scheduled to be bid shortly thereafter. Additionally, several signature projects have been planned for 2012 including: extensive green infrastructure renovations at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo; major collaboration with the City of Syracuse Parks Department at several locations throughout the City; and implementation of the I-690 Downspout Disconnection Program which recently received a $472,000 grant from New York State. 2012 will also include the continuation of important green infrastructure programs such as the Green Improvement Fund for private property owners; continued collaboration with the City of Syracuse on public property, and the introduction of the Save the Rain Suburban Green Infrastructure Program that will offer up to $3 million dollars in funding for municipal green infrastructure projects in areas outside the City of Syracuse. We hope to build off the great success of 2011 and look forward to continued success in 2012. 2012 Projects Status (as of 1/31/12): Projects Completed

FACT SHEET Atrium Garage Pilot Stormwater Cistern

Atrium Garage Pilot Stormwater Cistern Partnership Properties 201 S. Franklin Street Clinton/ Lower MIS Stormwater Detention Cistern 6,000 sq. ft. 38,400 gal/yr 2011 $15,000 (Engineer’s Estimate) Plumbers Association

Project Description: The Atrium Garage is a pilot Stormwater Cistern Project, which is the first of its kind to be constructed as part of the Save the Rain program. Phase 1 of this pilot project will reduce runoff by 38,400 gallons per year, by intercepting stormwater from one of the drain inlets on the top floor of the Atrium Garage parking deck. The suitability of the design will be monitored after installation so that future cistern projects can be optimized for performance. The parking deck is drained via multiple inlets on the top floor, which are conveyed by 4-inch diameter roof drains to a discharge pipe in the ground floor slab and out to the combined sewer system. By intercepting one of these 4-inch roof drains on the ground floor with a cistern tank, the discharge opening is reduced via a 1-inch diameter opening that allows the runoff to collect in the tank and slowly discharge into the combined sewer system after the rain has subsided.

Existing Conditions

The proposed 500-gallon polyethylene cistern tank will feature a bypass system that will allow normal flow from the roof drain when the tank is completely filled. The tank is sized to fit within a vacant area of the parking deck so that no existing parking spaces will be lost. As of January 2012, the cistern has been ordered. It will be installed in the Atrium Garage during the month of February 2012. Version 1/31/2012

Rain Barrel Program 2011 Onondaga County City of Syracuse Various Rain Barrels 363 (55 gal. capacity each) 1,216,413 gal/yr (est.) $99/barrel Environmental Finance Center

Project Description: This program – started in 2010 and currently ongoing – serves to distribute free rain barrels and train residents on how to properly install, use, and maintain rain barrels for their homes. In addition to attending a rain barrel workshop, participants are also required to authorize a rain barrel agreement form. This authorization affirms that the participant will “install, operate, maintain, and disconnect the rain barrel and downspout attachments” as dictated by the instructions they receive. Additionally, participants agree to return the barrel if they decide to stop using the barrel for stormwater capture and irrigation purposes. Save the Rain distributed 363 rain barrels to city residents in 2011. These barrels are expected to capture a total of approximately 1,216,413 gallons of stormwater per year when used by these residents. The 2012 Rain Barrel Program will begin in early spring, with at least 12 community workshops anticipated this year.

After a long haul of a move across the United States (Oregon to New York), I’m finally feeling settled in. I landed with a thud in Syracuse, and began grasping for some sort of botanical outlet. What I found might surprise those not in Syracuse, and for that matter maybe some that reside here. Syracuse is one of ten cities that the EPA has named as a model city for green infrastructure. Now the Oncenter, where the local hockey and indoor soccer games are played is home to one of the largest greenroofs in Central New York, and Syracuse plans to build many more of them. On top of that, the city and Onondaga County are installing rain gardens throughout the city as well! How exciting was this to discover! Although it isn’t as wonderful as it seems. It would be great if these types of projects could be implemented to prevent pollution from beginning, but not in this case. I’m sorry to say but probably not in any case, we are a culture of destroy first and fix later. In Syracuse their “Save the Rain” project has been jump started because the city, and Onondaga Lake were so polluted the community through a nonprofit organization, Atlantic States Legal Foundation, sued Onondaga County in 1988. After, there was plans to build several sewage plants around the city, one in the heart of their downtown. Then a savior came, County Executive Joanie Mahoney, who halted the plans of the sewage plants, and instead had a better idea. She wanted to do things a different way, one that might not destroy a city, but possibly make it grow. Now Save the Rain is getting national recognition and has made Syracuse a forerunner in green infrastructure. I had previously liked the Onondaga County Save the Rain project on facebook, (you should too), and was notified of a public forum at the local zoo. Since I was having a hard time digging through the internet for information, I decided to head over and meet some people. It was an informative and invigorating two hours. All at once access to more information than I had after days of online searching, was at my fingertips. I also had the opportunity to talk and ask questions to many knowledgable folks. From that night on, everywhere I go in Syracuse I notice a little here and another there of the work that is being done throughout the city. On my daily outing with my dog, Carrol, we walk through the James Pass Arboretum, which is currently a work in progress of two rain gardens. As I drive to my house I pass a newly renovated parking lot on Fayette street, and I just discovered today that my neighborhood library is in the process of receiving a greenroof makeover, if it wasn’t cool enough already?! A great start in the Botanical/Environmental search of my new home; Syracuse, New York. Brenda Bennett #Onondoga County Save The Rain #EPA #Syracuse #Greenroof

Since then, renovations at the Atrium and the Clinton Street garages promise safe parking spaces at all hours. Angled parking along Erie Boulevard near Clinton Square adds more spaces to the mix. New urbanism exhorts developers to hide parking lots behind visually appealing streetscapes. Environmental designers recommend porous pavement to prevent runoff, a good idea adopted by Onondaga County’s “Save the Rain” initiative. An intriguing article by New York Times cultural critic Michael Kimmelman proposes new uses for parking lots — like the farmers market that filled the lot behind Common Center in Syracuse on summer Tuesdays, before it moved to Clinton Square. Kimmelman writes of parking lots hosting street-hockey games, teen dances and church services. He cites a Brooklyn firm’s plan to turn a “dead mall” lot in Dutchess County into a laboratory for entrepreneurs and service providers. Kimmelman wants cities to abandon minimum-parking-space requirements for builders. He warns of the “Pensacola Parking Syndrome,” named for the Florida city that kept tearing down old buildings for parking lots — until visitors stopped coming because the urban space was no longer inviting. Freeze parking spaces like Boston has, Kimmelman advises. Make people pay more to park. Make cities more walkable. All interesting, provocative ideas. Syracuse’s Maxwell, too, worries about prioritizing cars over pedestrians. “Everyone is a pedestrian at some point of their journey,” he notes. “There needs to be a bit of a change in our paradigm so that people come first, cars come second.”

Opinion today: There's more to Onondaga Lake than pollution Published: Tuesday, January 10, 2012, 12:05 AM; Updated: Tuesday, January 10, 2012, 12:38 PM

By The Post-Standard

Tracking commentary and opinion from around Central New York, the state and nation. Tuesday's Topic: Patrick Coyne, of Syracuse, writes about the positive features of Onondaga Lake in the Readers' Page of today's Post-Standard. Here is his letter: I am one of the most active beneficiaries of what Onondaga Lake has to offer. I am on the lake or in the park at least once a week throughout the year. Based on my time out there, three very unique and very positive features stand out. The park: My guess is that there is not another major metropolitan area in the country that has a public park surrounding a full-size natural lake. I especially like early spring and late fall, when a variety of migratory birds can be seen. I have also taken a liking to flying my big kites in the park when the winds are right. The waste beds: They have in effect become a forever-wild area, and with the completion of the creekwalk trail, you have what could be a designated forever wild area within biking distance of Syracuse University, the forestry school and downtown. From downtown, the ride’s all flat, and you won’t even break a sweat to see osprey, bald eagles, deer and fox. This is incredibly unique! The lake itself: The fishing is phenomenal, and because of the clarity and the large populations of fish, I am seriously considering putting a glass bottom in my canoe. The lake is like a wild aquarium. I may be the only person anyone has seen on the lake in the winter. Again, something unique to Onondaga Lake is that there are no snowmobiles on it in the winter. This has allowed me some very peaceful enjoyment and some interesting recreation. Because

http://www.syracuse.com/news/index.ssf/2012/01/opinion_today_theres_more_to_o.html


snowmobiles are not disturbing the surface, you end up with some very smooth ice and snow conditions. Three years ago, I was able to ice skate around the entire lake. It was an almost surreal experience. My son and I regularly reach speeds of 40 to 50 mph on snow skis while flying our big kites on the ice. No snowmobile access makes such activity possible. There is one negative thing that continues to pollute our perceptions of Onondaga Lake: the phrase “one of the most polluted lakes in the world.” This often-quoted old claim to fame, I am sure, continues to do damage to our community and our economy. In conversations about the lake, when I feel the urge to repeat that nasty old phrase, I substitute “the jewel of Syracuse.” There really needs to be a positive feeling about the lake for our community to benefit from all the good work that’s being done, and that old phrase does not instill any warm, fuzzy feelings. So can I suggest, when given the opportunity, try substituting a sparkly word instead. It will make you a better educator and a better promoter of what Onondaga Lake is and has to offer. Patrick Coyne was among about 150 people who attended a Nov. 29 community forum on the Onondaga Lake cleanup. He distributed this statement at the event.

Parking Places: Make them an integral part of the urban landscape Published: Thursday, January 12, 2012, 2:00 AM

By The Post-Standard Editorial Board Asked to name “one thing you dislike about downtown” back in 2008, the most frequent response from Syracuse-area residents by far was “parking.” Suburbanites in particular aren’t used to parking a block or more from their destination — and paying for it. It doesn’t help to find a ticket on the windshield. Then there’s the feeling in the dense urban network that there aren’t enough parking spaces. That last perception seems offbase. A city master plan in 2004 reported 39 percent of downtown property is devoted to parking. It counted 22,000 off-street parking spaces. A study commissioned by the Syracuse Industrial Development Agency in 2008 tallied an additional 1,616 on-street parking spaces, noting that 3,000 spaces a day remain unused at peak hours. “Our philosophy is that there is not a shortage of parking downtown,” says Andrew Maxwell, Syracuse’s director of sustainability and planning. “It’s a perception issue.” Soon after taking office in 2008, Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney observed: “People in Syracuse think that if you can’t pull in front of a restaurant and park for free, right there, there is a parking problem.” That expectation is a recipe for urban disaster, according to the social critic Lewis Mumford, who wrote half a century ago: “The right to have access to every building in the city by private motorcar ... is the right to destroy the city.” In 2006, an Onondaga Citizens League study called for a vigorous municipal effort to coordinate parking and establish design standards. “If people perceive there is a shortage, then that perception becomes the problem and must be addressed,” the study said.

PBS documentary takes a look at Syracuse Published: Monday, January 30, 2012, 8:42 AM; Updated: Monday, January 30, 2012, 9:19 AM

By James T. Mulder / The Post-Standard

Syracuse, N.Y. -- Syracuse will be profiled in a four-week television documentary series that will air on WCNY at 8 p.m. each Sunday in February. The documentary, “Designing Healthy Communities,” looks at how Syracuse and other communities nationwide are trying to redesign themselves to address public health issues such as obesity, heart disease, diabetes, asthma, depression, violence and social inequities. A film crew that made the documentary visited Syracuse in 2010. Syracuse is mentioned at various points in the series, but is featured most prominently in the second episode scheduled to air Feb. 12. That episode includes interviews with Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner, Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney, Onondaga tribal leader Oren Lyons, community residents, economic development leaders, medical students and medical professionals. The episode also looks at Syracuse streets and highways, community development projects, local food systems and Onondaga and Skaneateles lakes. The series is hosted by Dr. Richard Jackson, chair and professor of environmental public health at UCLA’s School of Public Health. The documentary’s producers, Harry Wiland and Dale Bell of the Media Policy Center, came to Syracuse after being contacted by Kathy Goldfarb-Findling, former executive director of the Gifford Foundation. The foundation had screened one of the duo’s other documentaries, “Philadelphia: The Holy Experiment,” as part of a film series. Funding for the Syracuse segment of the documentary was provided by Gifford, Syracuse University, the John Ben Snow Memorial Trust, Alliance Bank, CenterState CEO, Community Health Foundation of Western and Central New York, Franciscan Management Services Inc., Hueber-Breuer, National Grid, St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center Foundation, United States Green Business Council and Upstate Medical University.
