CMRSWC MS4 Stormwater Services

Central Massachusetts Regional Stormwater Coalition (CMRSWC)

Tata & Howard is working with communities in south-central Massachusetts under a project funded by a Community Innovation Challenge (CIC) Grant. Of more than 120 applications received, this stormwater project was one of few that was fully funded, which demonstrates the importance of the work and the value to the region. This project, which is supported by MassDEP, DCR, Blackstone River Coalition, and many others, is highly regarded in the industry. Tata & Howard moderated several workshops with participating communities to determine the most essential tasks for this project as well as the critical content of each task. Based on the needs identified by these workshops, the project includes 31 key tasks, detailed below, all of which are directly related to stormwater:
