Stormwater Update

Stormwater Assessments

The Select Board has contracted with Public Water Systems Services, LLC to provide Rollinsford with the identification of the town’s outfalls (locations where stormwater empties into a river, lake, etc.) and to identify, sample and assess the town’s storm drains.   To this end, you will be seeing PWSS staff and our road agent in the process of accomplishing this.

The Town of Rollinsford has been an EPA MS4 stormwater permittee since 2003 and as a permittee is required to complete progress on an agreed-upon plan.    The MS4 permit is in the process of being revised with an anticipated issue date of September 2016.   The revised permit will  be more restrictive in nature and the work being done by PWSS is a start toward fulfilling the town’s obligations.
The Board is also in the proces of forming a stormwater committee in order to plan and ovesee our work on the MS4 permit.   If you are interesting in serving on such a committee please send an email to:  caroline.lamoureux@rollinsford.nh.us (or otherwise contact the town).
