Case descriptions Case 6: Storm Water Management Project
Forms of restructuring intermunicipal cooperation - cooperation with another public agency; privatization - cooperation with a private company
Specific services affected design and construction of a first flush storm water management pond for a commercial area that drains directly into Irondequoit Creek. The county designed the project and secured the grants to pay for it. The private company provided the land (behind the plaza). The Town did most of the construction work, except for one subcontract that was paid in exchange for the fill generated by the new pond, which will be used in a new park area.
