EPA Stormwater Requirements

Woburn operates the City’s stormwater drainage system under a General Stormwater Permit issued jointly by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection as part of their National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Stormwater Permitting program.  The Stormwater General Permit is part of a federally mandated program to reduce water pollution from stormwater under the Clean Water Act.

EPA’s Phase II stormwater management program website provides more information on this program and the City’s permit and required actions.
