Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Program


Borton-Lawson’s Dave Yefko and Brian Palmiter presented a general overview and progress update of the state mandated Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permitting program this week at a meeting in Fairview Township. Borton-Lawson is Fairview Township’s municipal engineer.

All municipalities in designated urbanized areas across the state are required to participate in the program. These regulations are intended to keep stormwater systems clean, and in turn, protect downstream waterways, freshwater ecosystems, and human health.
