The Connecticut River Stormwater Committee is a coalition working to share information and collaborate on fulfilling obligations under the EPA stormwater permit (known as the General Permit for Stormwater Discharges from the Small Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems in Massachusetts or MS4 permit).
The Committee has membership from 19 municipalities and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and is facilitated in its work by the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission. The group's primary work is to promote education and outreach about stormwater impacts on the Connecticut River. This website is an important element of that work.
Committee members include:
University of Massachusetts
The Connecticut River Stormwater Committee is a member of the MA Statewide Municipal Stormwater Partnership. The statewide partnership brings together groups of communities from across the Commonwealth to share resources and best practices.
The statewide partnership has reprised the "Think Blue Massachusetts" education campaign with the rubber ducky logo to help disseminate basic stormwater information across the state and complement the outreach efforts by regional coalitions like the Connecticut River Stormwater Committee.
