This grant funded project will provide the Town with a more complete knowledge of the stormwater system and will further the town’s ability to maintain, operate, and fund improvements to the stormwater system. The project will also identify the stormwater infrastructure to meet the needs of the Town’s Future Land Use Map to identify crucial needs for stormwater infrastructure improvements and risk mitigation. The areas that will be assessed for stormwater-related planning and improvement include, but are not limited to, Town facilities and properties, drainage infrastructure (including outfalls, catch basins, and culverts), mitigation measures along impaired streams, recommendations on a stormwater utility fee, and staffing needs for effective stormwater management. The proposed planning process will involve public education and outreach. This work will build upon the recently adopted Stormwater Master Plan and provide detailed capital planning.
