MS4 Management Software Demos

Several folks have been asking if there is a software program available to help manage MS4 activities and reporting under the new permit. We have found a couple of options: PermitTrack and MS4Front.

To help you compare the two and evaluate whether they would be of use to you, we held webinar demos for each on Feb. 15. See recordings of the webinars below.

Webinar – Getting Started with Your SWM Plan

NEMO is holding a webinar on Tuesday February 7 at 2pm focused on the first step in your journey through the new MS4 General Permit requirements – registration and your Stormwater Management (SWM) Plan.

For the 121 communities (plus institutions) covered under CT DEEP’s newly revised “MS4” stormwater regulations, the first requirements are to develop (or revise) a Stormwater Management Plan (SWMP) and register as an MS4. Draft SWMPs are to be posted for public comment and submitted to CT DEEP by April 1, 2017. That’s 2 months away. Yikes!

Fear not, this presentation will cover what’s required to be in the plan, share a template for a SWM Plan that you can adapt and use, and introduce you to NEMO’s new MS4 Online Guide (the website you are on now) – a repository for tools, maps and information related to the permit.

The webinar will be presented by our new MS4 Circuit Rider, Amanda Ryan, and Dave Dickson.

The webinar recording can be found on our Webinars Page (in the Tools section).
