Under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) stormwater program, operators of small municipal storm sewer systems require authorization to discharge stormwater. The Town of Nahant is applying for coverage under NPDES General Permit for Stormwater Discharges. In order to obtain permit coverage, the Town is required to develop a stormwater management program (SWMP).
The program is designed to reduce the discharge of pollutants from Nahant’s storm sewer system to the maximum extent practicable; protect water quality, and satisfy the water quality requirements of the Clean Water Act and Massachusetts Water Quality Standards. As part of the Town’s ongoing public education program, information regarding stormwater issues, announcements and water conservation information will be posted on these webpages. Please visit these pages as our Storm Water Management Program is finalized.
