The first semiannual report shall cover the period from July 1, 2016, through December 31, 2016. Such reports shall include the number of catch basins inspected, the number of clogged or malfunctioning catch basins identified, the number of catch basins unclogged or repaired, whether the inspection was in response to a complaint, and the response time for resolution of any complaint. The commissioner of environmental protection shall also ensure that such catch basins are inspected, at a minimum, once every year, and are unclogged or repaired within nine days after an inspection or the receipt of a complaint about a clogged or malfunctioning catch basin. Catch basins not unclogged or repaired within nine days after an inspection or the receipt of a complaint shall be identified in the semiannual report.
ยง 2.
