The Bay: Forced MS4 Reductions and Storm Water Utility Trends in 2017
April 21, 2017
Scott Gould and Ade Bakare will present The Bay: Forced MS4 Reductions and Storm Water Utility Trends in 2017 at the ILMA 2017 Mid-Year Seminar on April 23, 2017 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C. Iris Jones will be moderator for this presentation.
The session will discuss the increased regulations of stormwater discharges from MS4 systems, potential impacts of the new administration on stormwater regulation, and compliance and litigation concerns impacting stormwater utilities. The Chesapeake Bay will be used as a case study for the environmental law portion. It represents the largest TMDL ever, and much of the focus in Pennsylvania is on creating and demonstrating sediment and nutrient reduction from small MS4s. The session will also discuss formation of stormwater utilities as a means to fund municipal improvements, including a look at recent legal trends and issues facing municipalities.
