MS4 Municipalities & Institutions

The CT revised MS4 general permit applies to all municipalities that have at least 1,000 people within an "Urbanized Area". Urbanized areas are determined based on the 2010 U.S. Census. This includes 113 municipalities who were subject to the previous permit plus 8 new municipalities for a total of 121 towns. It also includes all state and federal institutions that operate a separate storm sewer system.
