The Stormwater Management Plan (SMP) prepared by the Town of North Branford was prepared in response to the NPDES Phase II program as administered by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (CTDEEP). The Phase II program is administered by CTDEEP through a General Permit for the Discharge of Stormwater from Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4). The original General Permit was issued in 2004 and extended through 2017, with the current MS4 General Permit going into effect on July 1, 2017.

Under the general permit requirements, the Town of North Branford is required to develop and implement a stormwater management plan that details how the Town will address six (6) minimum control measures. The stormwater management plan was prepared with the overall goal of reducing the discharge of pollutants to the "maximum extent practicable” to protect water quality. Read on to learn more and to see how you can make a difference.

The six (6) minimum control measures addressed in the SMP are as follows:

-Public education and Outreach

-Public Involvement and Participation

-Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination

-Citizen Reporting of "Suspected" Illicit Discharge

The public may report suspected illicit discharges or connections to the town by calling the Town Engineer (203 484-6009), or emailing him at .

-Construction Site Stormwater Runoff Control

-Post Construction Stormwater Management

-Pollution Prevention and Good Housekeeping
