Small MS4 Stormwater General Permits and Low Impact Development (LID) Training Clinics for Municipal Officials in New England

Picture of watermain breaking.

The U.S. EPA will soon issue new Small Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Stormwater General Permits in New Hampshire and Massachusetts that will likely include more prescriptive requirements designed to improve the effectiveness of the municipal stormwater management programs. The next generation MS4 permit requirements are likely to include new requirements for illicit discharge detection and elimination (IDDE) outfall monitoring, and for dischargers to impaired water bodies. There is also a growing awareness of the benefits of using LID techniques to promote groundwater recharge, improve urban environments, and prevent pollution.

A full-day training clinic is being offered in each of the following four locations to help New England municipal staff, officials, and other practitioners understand the requirements of the new Small MS4 Stormwater General Permits and promote more use of LID practices. PowerPoint presentations from two of the recently completed clinics are provided below for reference.
