Central Massachusetts Regional Stormwater Coalition (CMRSWC) Project Receives Funding

The CMRSWC project has been awarded an additional grant for the next phase of its stormwater compliance program. Tata & Howard has been working with 13 communities in south-central Massachusetts under a project funded by a Community Innovation Challenge (CIC) Grant, and an additional 17 communities have committed to participate in the next phase of work. This project, which is supported by MassDEP, DCR, Blackstone River Coalition, and many others, is highly regarded in the industry, and enables participating communities to fully comply with both 2003 and 2013 Massachusetts MS4 permit requirements.
