Stormwater is a major cause of pollution for waterbodies in Massachusetts. The EPA has drafted new regulations with additional requirements to further reduce stormwater pollution. The implementation of these requirements will increase costs associated with stormwater management. The goal of this project was to assist small to mid-size communities in Massachusetts with fulfilling the EPA’s new requirements for stormwater management. To accomplish this goal, we gathered information and conducted case studies to determine resource needs and current stormwater management programs for two Massachusetts towns. We compared these data to the requirements in the new regulations in order to develop a set of recommendations that communities can use as guidelines for reducing costs for implementation.
