    Town Engineer  |  Stormwater Management Program

    In response to Connecticut DEEP requirements, effective in 2004, the Town of Suffield through the Engineering Department obtained a Small Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4) Permit, developed a Stormwater Management Plan and subsequently submitted a number of annual reports summarizing activities undertaken in conformance with the plan. The Stormwater Management Plan indicated the town's best management practices for each of the folowing six required minimum control measures:

    1. Public Education and Outreach
    2. Public Involvement/Participation
    3. Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination
    4. Construction Site Stormwater Runoff Control
    5. Post-Construction Stormwater Management in New Development and Redevelopment
    6. Pollution Prevention/Good Housekeeping

    The initial duration of the MS4 Permit was 2004 - 2009 with permit revisions from DEEP initially anticipated in 2009. While retaining the program in its initial form, DEEP continued work on revisions to increase the scope of the program (including seeking municipal and public input) with the result that a new permit registration and Stormwater Management Plan (of greatly increased scope and schedule) are required to be completed by April 1st, 2017. The new requirements will likely require that the Town obtain a consulting firm to prepare a revised plan.
