The MyCoast New York Portal Can Be Used To Document Flooding In Our Community

An application to document flooding throughout the state of New York has been developed by the New York Sea Grant and NYS Water Resources Institute. The MyCoast New York Portal is used to collect and analyze photos of flooding, changing shorelines and hazardous weather impacts across New York’s various coasts and waterbodies. Reports developed from this flooding documentation can be beneficial for emergency managers, local planners, residents, and state agencies to understand our changing environment and the impacts of flooding on every New York community.

If you have photos of recent flooding events download the MyCoast app or visit the MyCoast portal for more information about local flooding and how you can report it.

The links below provide important information to help you be prepared should a hurricane or flood impact your area. Village of Bayville will check website links below at least monthly.

Rx Take-Back Kiosk

With great excitement the BECC is proud to announce that Bayville now has its very own Pharmaceutical Take-Back Kiosk obtained through the NYSDEC! The kiosk can be found inside Bayville Chemists Pharmacy, which is located across the road from the Bayville Firehouse.

Commissioner Jim Jones of the Bayville Environmental Conservation Commission makes the first “deposit” of spent pharmaceuticals. Hopefully the first of many!

We urge our residents to participate in using this kiosk to properly dispose of pharmaceuticals they no longer have a use for. This kiosk serves as a win for our community – providing a safe and environmentally conscious method for properly disposing pharmaceuticals. Please share this information with Bayville residents and if you have any questions do not hesitate to contact the BECC.

A special thank you to the Bayville Chemists agreeing to this program, the Mayor for his encouragement, and the two members of the Bayville DPW for assembling the unit.
