The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (CT DEEP) is in the process of revising their requirements for the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) program. These requirements significantly expand the number of impacted communities from a single tiered system involving 113 communities, to a two-tiered system which includes all 169 municipalities in the State. As a result, the proposed Connecticut MS4 program revisions have changes that will impact your community. This is not a voluntary program! It is a mandatory program that communities are required to implement.
Several communities have expressed concern regarding the impact of the modifications on personnel resources and implementation costs. As a result, further revisions to the permit requirements were issued at the end of January, 2015.
This EBC CT Chapter session on Connecticut’s Updated MS4 Program will provide an overview of the proposed modifications, and resulting impacts on local communities. The session will offer an update on the status of the ongoing negotiations with the CTDEEP to further revise the requirements to reduce financial hardship on local communities.
Continuing Education Certificates are awarded by the EBC for this program (3.5 training contact hours). Please select this option during registration if you wish to receive a certificate.\
