On May 10, EPA announced changes to the Massachusetts MS4 permit, which was issued in 2016 and has yet to take effect. The changes were coordinated with MassDEP and communities in the Commonwealth in order to reduce water quality impacts and flooding risk. These goals are addressed through several objectives: eliminating illicit sewage discharges, improving street sweeping and catch basin maintenance, and accounting for stormwater management in new development. More information about the permit and permit changes can be found here.
