While a lot of things may have changed over the last several months one thing has remained constant – rain still falls from the sky. As such, stormwater issues are still ever present throughout Connecticut in a variety of areas. This EBC Connecticut program will provide an update on some of the most pressing stormwater issues in Connecticut with an opportunity to discuss these updates.

MS4 Updates and Compliance

The Connecticut DEEP’s General Permit for the Discharge of Stormwater from Small Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4) is entering its fourth year in 2020. Tier I Municipalities will be wrapping up their dry weather screening programs, continue with impaired waters outfall monitoring, and will face new tasks.  These tasks include reviewing existing regulations for LID barriers, confirming legal authorities for stormwater retention standards, begin retrofit projects, and begin monitoring of the six “worst” outfalls. This program will highlight where the program standards to date, and offer compliance paths for upcoming Year 4 tasks for municipalities and their consultant partners.

Construction Stormwater General Permit Updates

The General Permit for the Discharge of Stormwater and Dewatering Wastewaters from Construction Activities (CSGP) expires in September and DEEP plans to reissue the CSGP with modifications. Significant modifications to the CSGP are expected, including several conditions applicable solely to solar array projects. This program will highlight the anticipated modifications and how some of the anticipated requirements are already being addressed by current projects.

A robust question and answer panel discussion between presenters and attendees will take place following the presentations.
