Newton MA Stormwater Management Fee
In 2008 the Town of Cohasset, MA adopted a Stormwater Bylaw. Norfolk Ram Group, LLC (Norfolk) serves as Stormwater Agent for the Town of Cohasset under the direction of the Conservation Commission (the local board which administers the Stormwater Bylaw). As Stormwater Agent, Norfolk has had several discussions with the Town Manager and Conservation Commission about ways and mechanisms to help the Town to pay for on-going and necessary stormwater improvement projects. Some Town stormwater projects have been for improving water quality in coastal and water supply watersheds, and some for control of significant flooding in low lying areas, and some projects address both water quality and flooding. Paying for maintenance of these systems is also an on-going issue. The approach adopted in the City of Newton, MA (within the Charles River Watershed) seems to be working, and this is an approach that Cohasset may want to consider. See the attached article on the Newton Stormwater Fee.
