The Cambridge Department of Public Works is holding a public meeting to discuss the City’s efforts in the implementation of its Stormwater Management Program on Tuesday, March 27, from 6:00 – 7:00 P.M., Department of Public Works, Frazier Conference Room, 147 Hampshire Street. 

The City developed its Stormwater Management Program based on the requirements established under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Phase II (NPDES Phase II) regulations in 2003 and revised it in 2006.  In 2016 EPA released a new permit that will become effective July 1, 2018. 

EPA’s NPDES Phase II Stormwater Management program provides a framework for improving the quality of stormwater discharges to waterways through the identification of six minimum control measures.  The City’s Stormwater Program identifies stormwater management activities that address the NPDES Phase II program’s six minimum control measures, which are:

  • public education and outreach
  • public participation and involvement
  • illicit discharge detection and elimination
  • construction site runoff control
  • post-construction site runoff control
  • pollution prevention and good housekeeping measures

The City’s efforts over the past year and regulation changes under the new permit will be discussed.

For more information about the meeting or the NPDES Phase II Stormwater Management Program visit or contact Catherine Daly Woodbury, DPW Engineering Project Manager, at 617.349.4818 or .
