Municipal Stormwater Permits, Green Infrastructure and You!
In the spring of 2016, CRWA hosted a series of MS4 permit workshop sponsored by Foundation of MetroWest and hosted by Mass Audubon and the Millis Public Library. Workshop participants discussed the new Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permit as well as effective and innovative strategies for reducing nutrient pollution to rivers. The training was well attended by municipal staff and volunteer board or commission members. Our diverse and experienced speakers addressed many relevant topics including strategies for implementing green infrastructure to reduce phosphorus, developing phosphorus control plans under the new MS4 permit, stormwater coalitions, and much more. All of the presentations can be viewed by clicking on our interactive agenda below.
