Storm Water Management

The Town manages the storm drainage system which consists of 180 miles of pipe and 8,000 drainage structures, designed to drain storm water from public streets or other public facilities into 300 locations along watercourses. Storm drainage systems serving private property are the maintenance responsibility of the private property owner.

The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (CTDEEP) requires municipalities like West Hartford that own and operate storm drainage systems in an urbanized area that discharge stormwater to register and submit Stormwater Management Plan to fulfill the requirements of the General Permit for the discharge of stormwater from small municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4).

The Town of West Hartford prepared the Stormwater Management Plan in compliance with the CTDEEP General Permit

Please send comments pertaining to the Town’s Stormwater Management Plan to: Duane Martin, Town Engineer at DuaneM@westhartfordct.gov.
