MAHONEY ANNOUNCES
SAVE THE RAIN
 PROJECT MEETS MAJOR MILESTONE
6 Million Gallon Storage Facility Now Accepting Flow from 9 sewer outfalls, Reducing Pollution to Onondaga Creek and Onondaga Lake.
Syracuse, NY
 –
 Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney today announced that the Clinton Combined Sewage Storage Facility in Armory Square in Downtown Syracuse is on-line. With this success, Onondaga
County meets a major milestone in the County’s feder
al court order requiring Onondaga County to reduce combined sewer overflows into Onondaga Creek and Onondaga Lake. The facility is now capturing the flow from nine combined sewer outfalls, reducing pollution that results from heavy storms overwhelming the City of Syracuse's combined sewer system.
“Thank you to the entire project team for their resolve to meet this important milestone on schedule and with minimal disturbance to the community,” said Joanie Mahoney. “This storage facility is a cost
effective and environmentally responsible alternative to building a sewage treatment plant in Armory Square. When I was sworn in as County Executive six years ago, our community was on a very different path towards cleaning up Onondaga Lake. I'm proud of how far we have come in such a short period of time and once again congratulate our project team for their monumental work effort to complete this project on schedule," Mahoney continued. In January 2008, County Executive Mahoney halted the construction of a sewage treatment facility in Armory Square, which had an estimated $94 million price tag. As an alternative, the County has built a state-of-the-art, six million gallon stormwater storage facility and simultaneously investing millions of dollars in green infrastructure throughout the City of Syracuse to capture stormwater before it enters our combined sewer system. On November 27, 2013, County Executive Mahoney announced the partial reopening of the former
“Trolley Lot” in Armory Square, providing parking spaces
free of charge for holiday shoppers. The lot
