Municipal Options for Meeting MS4 Compliance Without Breaking the Budget
Municipalities wishing to meet MS4 requirements have many options: hire a consultant, do an education program for the public, or test water coming from outfalls… but one of the most effective steps to take is to use existing resources, existing personnel, and existing projects and property to improve the quality of stormwater in local streams and bodies of water. The webinar focuses on four areas: retrofit of existing detention ponds; installation of permeable pavements; construction of rain gardens; and restoration of streambanks. These four ‘Best Management Practices (BMP)' are accomplishable by a municipality, affordable to a limited budget, and creditable for a MS4 program. Municipalities can address pipeline safety at the local level through best planning practices and ordinance.
