How does Milton manage stormwater?

The Town uses a written Stormwater Management Plan for operations, and requires stormwater controls in its Stormwater Management bylaw. The Stormwater Management Bylaw was first approved at the Annual Milton Town Meeting in May 2006. To view the Bylaw, see the Stormwater Management Bylaw. In February 2016, Town Meeting approved the creation of a stormwater utility fee and stormwater enterprise fund in order to help the town pay for compliance with EPA and MassDEP stormwater regulations. To see more information about the history of the stormwater utility in Milton, visit the Background Information page.
