MS4 Permit and Stormwater Subdivision Regulations
The Town of Rollinsford holds an MS4 permit from the US Environmental Protection Agency which constrains the town to manage stormwater runoff in responsible ways so as not to further impair local waterways such as the Salmon Falls River, Rollins Brook, and Fresh Creek.
The town received a grant from the Piscataqua Regions Estuary Partnership (PREP) to review and develop stormwater-related regulations to be included with the town’s subdivision regulations. Liz Durfee, a planner with the Strafford Regional Planning Commission, serves as project manager of the grant and she will provide an overview of the committee’s work.
The Planning Board will be formally reviewing the proposed stormwater regulations and will hold a public hearing on these changes in the ensuing months. This meeting is an information presentation of the topic.
