Stormwater is water which runs off of impervious surfaces such as parking lots, roof tops, driveways and roadways during and after a storm. In many areas of Amherst stormwater enters into the town stormwater system consisting of the catch basins, pipes, culverts, and outfalls that carry the water to a discharge point. This system is maintained by the Amherst Department of Public Works.
The Town of Amherst recently submitted it's Year 1 Annual Report covering reporting period: May 1, 2018 - June 30, 2019. Click here for the Year 1 Annual Report. The report summarizes how the permit requirements were met during the reporting period, and describes the Town's efforts toward stormwater management.
As the program is developed more information regarding public participation will be posted on this webpage.
