Stormwater Outfall Sampling will occur throughout town.

Stormwater requirements of the federal Clean Water Act are administered through the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Program, or the MS4. The MS4 permit requires the Town to monitor and sample the water exiting the stormwater system at the outfall points. There are hundreds of these discharge points throughout the town. Weston and Sampson has been contracted to conduct sampling.  They will be monitoring outfalls in wet and dry weather, wearing construction vests and driving a Weston and Sampson vehicle. Questions should be directed to the Engineering department.

The Town of Guilford 2020 Draft Annual Report for MS4 General Permit is now available (February 13, 2020).   While it is posted online, a hard copy is also available for viewing in the engineering department at 50 Boston Street, Town Hall South.

On July 6, 2012 a law took effect that made significant reforms to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), among other things, this law requires FEMA to take immediate steps to eliminate a variety of flood insurance premium subsidies.
