Stormwater runoff from parking lotIt’s tough to be a stormwater manager in a small MS4. These small communities, often with less than 10,000 residents, have few staff, low funding and limited experience to administer these new stormwater programs.

The CSN conducted a seminar several years ago on building effective stormwater programs for Pennsylvania communities. The two day workshop was held in Swarthmore College, and was lead by Liz Garland of American Rivers. The seminar featured six short training modules for small MS4 stormwater managers. These modules present the basic small MS4 requirements and provide tips on how to build each program on a shoestring that other successful communities have used. The program building modules can be accessed below:
