The Cape Cod Commission, through its District Local Technical Assistance (DLTA) grant program, has awarded a total of $40,000 in grant and matching funds to the Cape Cod Stormwater Managers group. This funding is being used to assist Cape Cod communities in updating their stormwater management programs and meeting the requirements of the newly issued MS4 permit.
The MS4 permit regulates municipal stormwater systems to protect and restore water quality. It is administered by Mass DEP and the U.S. EPA Region 1 Office. Cape Cod Commission staff and an outside consultant will be working together with the towns to develop shared tools, strategies, and materials that are tailored for Cape Cod’s unique hydrologic and geographic setting and can be utilized by all of the member towns.
