Stormwater runoff is the leading cause of water pollution and has evolved from being an urban flood problem to an environmental protection and regulatory function. Monitoring and managing stormwater runoff contaminants is a serious issue faced by Massachusetts municipalities in protecting their water quality standards. The goal of this project was to create a master database and an online reporting form to aid municipalities in tracking data and improving stormwater pollution prevention practices. The focus of this guidance was to provide resources to municipalities as they address the three main contemporary stormwater program challenges: budgeting issues, compliance issues, and a breakdown in communication and organization.
