Municipalities will be required to apply for a Municipal Roads General Permit. A draft of the permit will be available for public review and comment during 2017. Towns will have until July 1, 2021 to apply for coverage. As part of the General Permit, towns will develop a Road Stormwater Management Plan, which will contain an inventory of town roads, a prioritization of hydrologically-connected road segments, and an implementation schedule. Towns will have the first 5 years of their permit coverage to develop the plan and implementation can be phased over 20 years.
Look out for a Road Stormwater specific update from SWCRPC in September.
