Are You Ready for MS4?

May 16th, 2018 by Nick Cristofori


Only a little over 7 weeks remain until the new NPDES MS4 permit becomes effective!  Are you ready?

By now, hopefully you’re aware that the new permit goes into effect July 1, 2018 and “starts the clock” on completion of Year-1 requirements.  Even though the first action item, the Notice of Intent (NOI), isn’t due until September 29, 2018, we highly recommend that you begin its preparation during the next couple months.  

Although fairly brief, this document forms the basis of your Phase II program with EPA.  It requires identification of responsible parties for each proposed measure which can involve multiple departments throughout your city or town.  We recommend you begin involving these departments early on, before submitting your NOI.  If you would like assistance, please let us know.

For more information or assistance with Phase II permit requirements, please contact me at 800-725-2550, x303, or ncristofori@ceiengineers.com or Rebecca Balke at x308, or rbalke@ceiengineers.com.
