Stormwater Management

Rake your leaves and grass clippings away from the road, sidewalk, driveway and wetlands to reduce water pollution. Fallen leaves are loaded with natural fertilizer, which can cause water pollution that harms people and animals. Learn more at the Neponset Stormwater Partnership's website.

Take a tour of the new stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs) installed at the Milton Police Station.

This video was created to show the functioning of the BMPs in wet weather and document the post-construction adjustments that are needed to accommodate the additional flow of stormwater. This is why in some sections of the video, there is visible accumulation of sediment.
