A requirement of all regulated “MS4” municipalities, including the Village of Green Island, is the submission of an Annual Report to the New York

Annual Report provided they have a legally binding agreement with other regulated “MS4s”.

agreement which listed as one of the shared activities the preparation of a Joint Annual Report. As a
consequence of these two legal agreements, thirteen regulated “MS4s” in Albany County can submit a Joint
Annual Report. Sean Ward (Green Island) has been the uncompensated Chairman of the Board of the Coalition since its inception.

Annual Report (Option 3) such that activities pertaining to Minimum Control Measures 1 and 2 (Public
Education and Public Participation) have been recorded for each “MS4”, but submitted as aggregate totals.

Elimination; Pre and Post Construction Stormwater Management; and Municipal Good Housekeeping) is
