The purpose of the fifth MCM is to effectively manage post-construction stormwater discharges to the Town’s MS4. This measure involves requiring stormwater control measures (SCMs) to be installed with new development projects.
Stormwater Control Measures (SCMs)
SCMs refer to engineered practices designed to:
Remove pollutants from stormwater runoff
Reduce downstream erosion
Provide flood control
Promote groundwater recharge
SCMs are required for new developments that disturb one acre or more of land, including projects less than one acre that are part of a larger common plan of development.
Please refer to the SCM page for more information.
