In Massachusetts, regulations govern how to manage stormwater pollution. This handbook describes how to follow the regulations.
The Stormwater Handbook was revised and updated in February 2008 in accordance with revisions to the Wetlands regulations, 310 CMR 10.00, and the Water Quality Regulations, 314 CMR 9.00, relating to stormwater.
Volume 1 lays out the legal and regulatory framework for the Handbook. The Massachusetts Stormwater Standards are contained in Chapter 1 of Volume 1.
This section discusses the elements of stormwater management, particularly Best Management Practices (BMPs).
Volume 3 describes how to prepare a Stormwater Report, which is required when submitting an application for a Wetlands Notice of Intent for a project subject to the stormwater-management provisions of the Wetlands Protection Act.
Use these documents to prepare a Stormwater Report as part of a Wetlands Notice of Intent application. The Checklist is a preparation guide for writing the Stormwater Report. Both the Checklist and the Stormwater Report should be submitted with the Notice of Intent (WPA Form 3) when a project is subject to the stormwater-management provisions of the Wetlands Protection Act.
The TSS Removal Calculation Worksheet is part of the Stormwater Report and a completed worksheet should also be submitted with a Notice of Intent application.
Stormwater management in Massachusetts is governed by sections of the Wetlands Regulations, 310 CMR 10.00, and the Water Quality Regulations, 314 CMR 9.00.
