Getting Started on Your New MS4 Permit
For the 121 communities (plus institutions) covered under CT DEEP's newly revised "MS4" stormwater regulations, the first requirements are to develop (or revise) a Stormwater Management Plan (SWMP) for your town and register as an MS4. Draft SWMPs are to be posted for public comment and submitted to CT DEEP by April 1, 2017. Yikes! This presentation will cover what's required to be in the plan, share a template for a SWM Plan that you can adapt and use, and introduce you to NEMO's new MS4 Online Guide which be a repository for tools, maps and information related to the permit.
