Abstract

The 2016 Massachusetts Small Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) General Permit was established to reduce nonpoint source pollution of stormwater. Many communities have struggled to meet the fiscal demands of the regulation and need realistic budget expectations for future MS4 permit spending. Through regulation analysis and examination of spending practices, our research developed new MS4 budget predictions, suggested changes to MS4 permit spending for different regulatory aspects, and gave overall suggestions to improve permit spending for communities in Massachusetts.
