Slate Belt MS4 Public Outreach

On Monday, March 13th, Jeffrey L. Ott, PE, MBA, President of Ott Consulting Inc., and Municipal Engineer for the Borough of Bangor, presented information regarding the Borough’s stormwater management system, a part of a MS4 Public Outreach Program. Stormwater regulations associated with the Federal Clean Water Act (CWA) are administered under the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) program. The MS4 program focuses on managing discharges into the waters of the region through education and implementation of proper control measures and best management practices (BMPs).

Mr. Ott presented a map of the Borough and discussed how stormwater runoff, and any other runoff, eventually finds its way into the Martins Creek, which flows through the Borough. While storm sewers are designed to carry stormwater runoff, the flow may contain other undesirable contaminants. It can be contaminated by sediment or pollutants from other sources. Managing this runoff is key to maintaining clean water.
