MAYOR’S COMMUNICATIONS: 

 

A communication dated July 10, 2014 with attachments was received from His Honor the Mayor Scott D. Galvin as follows:

 

President Haggerty,

 

As we discussed, I am forwarding a storm water management ordinance for your sponsorship and review.

 

The Federal Clean Water Act requires communities in Massachusetts to periodically obtain a National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permit from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).  There are many regulations and mandates associated with the Clean Water Act, including compliance with storm water regulations issued by the EPA.  Adoption of the attached proposal as a City ordinance would partially fulfill NPDES permitting requirements and compliance with Federal storm water regulations for sedimentation and erosion control.

 

A team of City officials spent the past four months refining and tailoring a “template” ordinance provided by the EPA.  The team included City Engineer Jay Corey, DPW Director Jay Duran, City Solicitor Ellen Callahan Doucette, Conservation Administrator Theresa Murphy, Planning Director Tina Cassidy and Municipal Inspections Director Tom C. Quinn.  The proposed ordinance is intended to comprehensively address issues related to both the EPA and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts requirements for storm water management, illicit storm drain connections, alteration of drainage patterns and the control of erosion and sedimentation during construction activities.  It would replace the existing Article IV of Title 13, Public Services, of the Woburn Municipal Code entitled Drainage System

 

Sincerely; Mayor Scott D. Galvin

 

Attached thereto was the following Order:

 

ORDERED

 

Be it ordained by the City Council of the City of Woburn that Title 13, Public Services, of the 1989 Woburn Municipal Code, as amended, be further amended by replacing the existing Article IV entitled “Drainage System” with the following entitled Article IV Stormwater, Illicit Discharge/Connection and Construction Site Management as follows:

 

IV.       STORMWATER, ILLICIT DISCHARGE/CONNECTION AND CONSTRUCTION SITE MANAGEMENT

 

13.4.1    Purpose

 

  1. The purpose of this Ordinance is to protect the surface water bodies, wetlands, natural resources, and public and private property within the City of Woburn from the negative impacts caused by polluted and unmanaged stormwater runoff and activities related to development, construction and land surface alteration and work not otherwise subject to regulation by the Planning Board and/or the Conservation Commission. In response to the mandates set forth under the amendments to the Federal Clean Water Act, this Ordinance partially fulfills the requirement of the Phase II National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permit in order to achieve compliance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s stormwater regulations.

 

  1. Because stormwater discharges from a variety of sources, including storm sewers, construction, waste disposal, earth disturbance and resource extraction, are major causes of impairment to the water quality of natural coastal and inland water bodies and wetland resource areas; this Ordinance is designed to regulate a myriad of aspects relating to the development or redevelopment of land as well as to detect and eliminate illicit discharges into the City’s storm drainage system.

 

  1. This Ordinance and the regulations promulgated hereunder serve to establish minimum standards, design criteria, implementation, guidance and enforcement to achieve the following objectives:

 

    1. Establish, regulate and enforce stormwater management standards for development and redevelopment projects by adopting and enforcing the ten (10) Stormwater Management Standards set forth in the Massachusetts Stormwater Management Policy and set forth in Section 13.4.3.B;
    2. Detect and eliminate illegal discharges to the municipal storm drain system including but not limited to sewage, process wastewater, wash water, indoor drains, floor drains and sinks from residential, commercial or industrial sources;
    3. Guide, regulate and manage construction activities that render soil exposed and vulnerable to erosion by wind and water as well as contain and properly manage potential on-site pollutants including but not limited to oils, gasoline, pesticides, paints, garbage and sanitary wastes;
    4. Regulate the alteration of grades/elevations of the land surface by more than two (2) feet to protect against damage to abutting properties and adjacent wetland resource areas resulting from altered drainage patterns.
    5. Authorize the City’s Engineering Department to establish and evaluate rules and regulations to further clarify and implement this Ordinance.

 

      1. Applicability

 

This Ordinance applies to all construction, development, and redevelopment activities that involve and/or impact stormwater discharge, soil disturbance, altering of grades or drainage patterns except as otherwise expressly exempted herein.

 

      1. Stormwater Management of New Development & Redevelopment

 

  1. Regulation of discharges to the municipal storm drainage system, surface waters and wetlands is necessary for the protection of the City of Woburn’s water bodies and groundwater, and to safeguard the public health, safety, welfare and the environment. Increased and contaminated stormwater runoff associated with developed land uses and the accompanying increase in impervious surface is a major cause of impairment of: water quality and flow in the ocean, lakes, ponds, streams, rivers, wetlands and groundwater; contamination of drinking water supplies; erosion of stream channels; alteration or destruction of aquatic and wildlife habitat; and flooding.

 

  1. This Ordinance establishes stormwater management standards for development and redevelopment projects that disturb twenty thousand (20,000) sq. ft. or more of land, in order to minimize adverse impacts offsite and downstream which would be borne by abutters, residents and/or the general public, by requiring compliance with all state and federal statutes and regulations relating to stormwater discharges and by adopting the following Standards of the Massachusetts Stormwater Policy:

 

    1. No new stormwater conveyances (e.g. outfalls) may discharge untreated stormwater directly to or cause erosion in wetlands or waters of the Commonwealth.
    2. Storm water management systems  shall be designed so that postdevelopment peak discharge rates do not exceed pre-development peak discharge rates;
    3. Loss of annual recharge to groundwater shall be eliminated or minimized through the use of infiltration measures to the maximum extent practicable, including environmentally sensitive site design, low impact development techniques, stormwater best management practices and good operation and maintenance. At a minimum, the annual recharge from a site post-development shall approximate the annual recharge from predevelopment conditions, based on soil type.  This standard is met when the stormwater management system is designed to infiltrate the required recharge volume as determined in accordance with the State’s Stormwater Handbook;
    4. Stormwater management systems shall be designed to remove eighty percent (80%) of all Total Suspended Solids (TSS).  This standard is met when:

 

        1. Suitable practices for source control and pollution prevention are identified in a long-term pollution prevention plan, and thereafter are implemented and maintained;
        2. Structural stormwater best management practices are sized to capture the required water quality volume determined in accordance with the Massachusetts Stormwater Handbook; and
        3. Pretreatment is provided in accordance with the Massachusetts Stormwater Handbook.

 

    1. For land uses with higher potential pollutant loads, source control and pollution prevention shall be implemented in accordance with the Massachusetts Stormwater Handbook to eliminate or reduce the discharge of stormwater runoff from such land uses to the maximum extent practicable.  If through source control and/or pollution prevention all land uses with higher potential pollutant loads cannot be completely protected from exposure to rain, snow, snow melt, and stormwater runoff, the proponent shall use the specific structural stormwater BMPs determined by the Department to be suitable for such uses as provided in the Massachusetts Stormwater Handbook.  Stormwater discharges from land uses with higher potential pollutant loads shall also comply with the requirements of the Massachusetts Clean Waters Act, M.G.L. c. 21, §§ 2653 and the regulations promulgated thereunder at 314 CMR 3.00, 314 CMR 4.00 and 314 CMR 5.00.
    2. Stormwater discharges within the Zone II or Interim Wellhead Protection Area of a public water supply, and stormwater discharges near or to any other critical area, require the use of the specific source control and pollution prevention measures and the specific structural stormwater best management practices determined by the Department to be suitable for managing discharges to such areas, as provided in the Massachusetts Stormwater Handbook. A discharge is near a critical area if there is a strong likelihood of a significant impact occurring to said area, taking into account site-specific factors.  Stormwater discharges to Outstanding Resource Waters and Special Resource Waters shall be removed and set back from the receiving water or wetland and receive the highest and best practical method of treatment.  A “storm water discharge” as defined in 314 CMR 3.04(2)(a)1 or (b) to an Outstanding Resource Water or Special Resource Water shall comply with 314 CMR 3.00 and 314 CMR 4.00.  Stormwater discharges to a Zone I or Zone A are prohibited unless essential to the operation of a public water supply.
    3. A redevelopment project is required to meet the following Stormwater Management Standards only to the maximum extent practicable: Standard 2, Standard 3, and the pretreatment and structural best management practice requirements of Standards 4, 5, and 6. Existing stormwater discharges shall comply with Standard 1 only to the maximum extent practicable.  A redevelopment project shall also comply with all other requirements of the Stormwater Management Standards and improve existing conditions.
    4. A plan to control construction-related impacts including erosion, sedimentation and other pollutant sources during construction and land disturbance activities (construction period erosion, sedimentation, and pollution prevention plan) shall be developed and implemented.
    5. A long-term operation and maintenance plan shall be developed and implemented to ensure that stormwater management systems function as designed.
    6. All illicit discharges to the stormwater management system are prohibited.

 

  1. The following activities and uses are exempt from the Stormwater Management Ordinance:

 

    1. Detached single-family dwelling;
    2. Detached two-family dwelling;
    3. Additions to detached single-family and two-family dwellings;
    4. Normal maintenance and improvement of land in agricultural use as defined by the Wetlands Protection Act regulation 310 CMR 10.04;
    5. Maintenance of existing landscaping, gardens or lawn areas provided such maintenance does not include the addition of soil material or alteration of existing grades and provided the project involves less than one hundred

(100 cubic) yards of fill (see Section 13.5.3.G., below);

    1. The construction of any walls and fencing that will not alter existing terrain or drainage patterns;
    2. Construction of utilities other than drainage (gas, water, sanitary sewer, electric, telephone, etc.) which will not alter terrain, ground cover, or drainage patterns;
    3. Projects within the jurisdiction of the Conservation Commission requiring an Order of Conditions;
    4. Projects under the jurisdiction of the Woburn Planning Board by virtue of the Subdivision Control Law; and
    5. Emergency repairs to roads or utility systems.

 

 

  1. For phased projects, the determination of whether the Stormwater Management Standards apply is made on the entire project as a whole including all phases.

When proposing a development or redevelopment project subject to the Stormwater Management standards, proponents shall consider environmentally sensitive site design that incorporates low impact development techniques in addition to stormwater best management practices.

 

  1. Project proponents seeking to demonstrate compliance with some or all of the Stormwater Management Standards to the maximum extent practicable shall demonstrate that:

 

    1. They have made all reasonable efforts to meet each of the Standards;
    2. They have made a complete evaluation of possible stormwater management measures, including environmentally sensitive site design, low impact development techniques that minimize land disturbance and impervious surfaces, structural stormwater best management practices, pollution prevention, erosion and sedimentation control, and proper operation and maintenance of stormwater best management practices; and
    3. If full compliance with the Standards cannot be achieved, they are implementing the highest practicable level of stormwater management.

 

  1. Projects involving one hundred (100) cubic yards of fill or more must obtain a Special Permit from the Woburn City Council, in accordance with Section 5.5 of the City’s zoning ordinance.

 

13.4.4 Illicit Connections

 

  1. This Ordinance also provides for the health, safety, and general welfare of the citizens of Woburn by regulating storm water discharge into the City’s storm drain system and waterways in accordance with the requirements of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit process.

 

  1. The City’s storm drainage system includes storm water pipes and drainage waterways and conveys surface water runoff to receiving waters. Generally runoff enters the storm water drainage system piping through catch basins on streets and on public and private property and from drainage swales and ditches. No sewage discharge is allowed into this system.

 

The City also has a separate piped municipal sanitary sewerage system. In order to reduce and eliminate infiltration and inflow into this system, no storm drainage discharge is allowed into the municipal sanitary sewer system from any source including, but not limited to, sump pumps and roof drainage. The sewerage system conveys wastewater from residences and commercial and industrial establishments to the wastewater treatment plant. The City’s sewerage system is regulated by Title 13, Article III, Sewer System, of the Woburn Municipal Code.

 

  1. The objectives of this section are to:

 

    1. Minimize the contribution of pollutants to the municipal storm drainage system;
    2. Minimize the negative impact of illicit connections and discharges upon the City’s natural resources;
    3. Prohibit illicit connections and discharges to the municipal storm drainage system; and
    4. Establish legal authority to carry out all inspection, surveillance and monitoring procedures necessary to ensure compliance with this Ordinance.

 

13.4.5 Erosion/Sedimentation and Materials Management

 

  1. During the construction process, soil is highly vulnerable to erosion by wind and water. Eroded soil endangers water resources by degrading water quality and causing the siltation of terrestrial and aquatic habitat for fish and other desirable species. Eroded soil also necessitates extraordinary maintenance and repair of storm drains and ditches and the dredging of lakes. In addition, clearing and grading during construction cause the loss of native vegetation necessary for terrestrial and aquatic habitat.

 

  1. Many potential pollutants other than sediment are associated with construction activities. These pollutants include pesticides, fertilizers used for vegetative stabilization; petrochemicals (oils, gasoline, and asphalt degreasers); construction chemicals (such as concrete products, sealers, and paints, wash water associated with these products); paper; wood; garbage; and sanitary wastes.

 

  1. As a result, the purpose of this section is to safeguard persons, protect property, and prevent damage to the environment in the City of Woburn. This Ordinance also promotes the public welfare by guiding, regulating, and controlling the design, construction, use, and maintenance of certain development or other activity that disturbs the topsoil or results in the movement of earth within the City of Woburn.

 

  1. Stormwater discharges from construction activities (such as clearing, grading, excavating, and stockpiling) that disturb one (1) acre or more are regulated under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) stormwater program. Prior to discharging stormwater, construction operators must obtain coverage under an NPDES permit, which is administered by Mass DEP and the EPA. An applicant is required to file a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) when seeking a NPDES permit.

 

    1. No person shall undertake a land-disturbing activity that would require the uncovering of one (1) acre (43,560 square feet) or more without the review and approval of the applicant’s SWPPP by the City Engineering Department. Such projects shall be required to also submit an Erosion/Sediment Control and Materials Management Plan with the application when, in the opinion of the City Engineer or his designee, the submission of such a plan is needed to further the purpose and intent of this Ordinance and/or to safeguard surrounding property and public infrastructure systems.

 

  1. No person shall be granted a site development permit for land-disturbing activity that would require disturbing less than one (1) acre (43,560 sq. ft.) but more than twenty thousand (20,000) sq. ft. without the approval of an Abbreviated Erosion/Sediment Control & Materials Management Application by the Engineering Department.

 

  1. The following activities and uses are exempt from the Erosion/Sedimentation and Materials Management Ordinance:

 

    1. Any emergency activity that is immediately necessary for the protection of life, property, or natural resources, as determined by the City’s Director of Inspectional Services or Director of the Board of Health;
    2. Repairs to any roadway or utility system deemed necessary by the City of Woburn Engineering Department or its designee;
    3. Existing nursery and agricultural operations conducted as a permitted use; or
    4. Projects disturbing less than twenty thousand (20,000) sq. ft. of land.

 

13.4.6  Drainage Pattern Alterations

 

  1. Changing the grading of the land surface can have an impact on drainage characteristics of even relatively small watershed areas. Therefore, regulating proposed grading for all projects, including minor ones is necessary for the protection of the City of Woburn’s natural resources, and to safeguard public and private property from the potential negative impacts due to increased peak rate run off, increase in volume, and flooding.

 

  1. A permit required by this Ordinance will be issued by the Director to the owner or the owner’s duly authorized agent after the Director has reviewed a plan submitted showing the nature of the grade change proposed. Said permit shall only be issued on such conditions, which shall be determined by the City Engineer, that will ensure that the proposed grade changes will not adversely affect existing drainage and groundwater conditions that could affect the public health, safety and welfare of any public way or adjoining real estate.

 

  1. It shall be unlawful for any person or other legal owner of real property in the City to disturb the existing grade of land by more than two (2) feet without first obtaining the approval of the City Engineer, and where applicable, the Conservation Commission (if the activity is subject to the Wetlands Protection

Act or the Woburn Wetland Ordinance (Title VII) and the Rules and Regulations adopted pursuant to that Ordinance) and the Planning Board (if the property is being altered pursuant to a plan subject to the Subdivision Control Law).

 

  1. In addition, any project involving the removal or filling of more than one hundred (100) cubic yards of earth must obtain a Special Permit from the Woburn City Council, in accordance with Section 5-5 of the Zoning Ordinance.

 

  1. The following activities and uses are exempt from the Drainage Pattern Alterations Ordinance:

 

1.        Emergency work as declared or determined by the Director of Engineering or his designee.

 

13.4.7 Responsibility For Administration

 

The Director of Engineering shall administer, implement, and enforce the provisions of these Stormwater and Construction Management Ordinances. Any powers granted or duties imposed upon the Director of Engineering by this Ordinance may be delegated in writing by the Director to persons or entities acting in the beneficial interest of or in the employ of the City.

 

13.4.8 Enforcement

 

  1. The Building Commissioner and the Police Department (“Enforcing Authority”) are authorized to enforce this ordinance and resulting regulations, orders, violation notices, and enforcement orders, and may pursue all criminal and civil remedies, including injunctive relief and monetary damages and costs of litigation and attorney fees, for such violations and for abatement and mitigation and compliance actions taken by the Enforcing Authority. Any person violating the provisions of these regulations shall become liable to the City for any expense, loss, or damage incurred by the City by reason of such violation, including but not limited to any fines, charges, or assessments made or imposed on the City by any federal state, or local agency.  To the extent permitted by state law, or if authorized by the owner or other party in control of the property, the Enforcing Authority, its agents, officers, and employees may enter upon privately owned property for the purpose of performing their duties under this ordinance and may make or cause to be made such examinations, surveys or sampling as it deems reasonably necessary to determine compliance with a permit issued under this ordinance.  Enforcement shall be further defined and included as part of the regulations promulgated under this ordinance.

 

  1. Violations of any of the provisions of this ordinance shall be subject to a fine of two hundred fifty dollars ($250.00) for the first violation and five hundred dollars ($500.00) for the second and subsequent violations.

 

  1. Each day, or part thereof that a violation continues shall be deemed a separate offense.

A communication dated June 12, 2014 was received from Building Commissioner Thomas C. Quinn, Jr. as follows:

 

Re: Special Permit Application Sign Off

 

This communication is to inform you that the City Solicitor and I have had discussions on the requirement for the Building Commissioner to sign off on Special Permit

Applications, it appears that there is no requirement in the Woburn Zoning Ordinances, or MGL c. 40A to sign off suitable for public hearing.

 

As of this time I am going to follow her recommendation and will not be signing off on these applications, however if there can be a suitable alternative as the solicitor also suggested I would be open to discussions with you and her to assist in helping applicants with a zoning district determination.

 

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Motion made and 2nd that MATTER be REFERRED TO COMMITTEE ON LIAISON, 8 in favor, 0 opposed, 1 absent (Drapeau absent).

A communication dated June 30, 2014 was received from City Clerk William C. Campbell as follows:

 

Re: Building Commissioner review of special permits

 

In view of the communication from the Building Commissioner indicating that absent an ordinance he would no longer pre-view special permit applications, I have reviewed special permit files in an effort to determine when the practice originated. I randomly selected special permit files from the City Council records held in permanent storage. Although I can find no clear defining moment, the practice dates back almost 30 years and may have come on the heels of the adoption of the revised Woburn Zoning Ordinances in 1985.

 

There have been four different variations of building commissioner sign offs on the petitions during this period. You will note from the dates that different forms were used for alternating petitions, which indicates that not every petitioner may have been using the latest version of the special permit application.

 

There is a letter dated June 13, 1985 from the City Clerk to a petitioner questioning whether a special permit was properly before the City Council. The letter read in part: “If you had proceeded as per our instruction sheet, the Building Inspector’s Office should have so advised you.” Although no copy of the instruction sheet was in the file, the letter does indicate that at the time there was some type of review of petitions by the Building Department before filing with the City Council.

 

The following are a list of the various statements listed on petitions and some sample dates.

 

  1. No statement requiring Building Department review listed on special permit petition: May 1, 1984; April 2, 1985; May 19, 1985; November 19, 1985

 

  1. “Reviewed and approved as suitable for public hearing by Building Department”:  June 18, 1985; July 9, 1985; December 3, 1985; February 4, 1986; August 12, 1986;   May 5, 1987; April 5, 1988; August 16, 1988

 

  1. “Has the Building Commissioner reviewed this? Yes or No”:

November 14, 1989; April 3, 1990; July 17, 1990; May 5, 1992; July 21, 1992;    October 18, 1994

 

  1. “Reviewed and approved as suitable for public hearing by Building Commissioner”: September 21, 1993; December 3, 1993; June 6, 1994

 

If you require any additional information, I am available at your convenience.
