June 30, 2019, marks the end of the first year of the Massachusetts MS4 permit, and with this date comes a number of required tasks for communities (and the culmination of much work). The checklist from EPA at left outlines the requirements, tasks, and permit section for reference needed by the June 30 deadline. Individual communities’ progress can be found here.

The next major deadline will come within three years of the permit effective date (or June 30, 2021), which is completing written procedures for site inspections and enforcement of sediment and erosion control procedures (page 13 of the MA MS4 General Permit).
