Stormwater Management Plan (SMP)
The SMP establishes goals, policies, and implementation actions that will achieve the Town's long-term objectives in a way that is understandable to the public, usable by the Town staff, and meets regulatory needs. The SMP establishes a means for measuring, reporting, and managing the Town's water resources by presenting benchmarks that will ensure compliance with applicable laws and permit requirements.
The SMP addresses stormwater quality management policies and management practices that are, or will be, implemented in Canton and its Urbanized Areas. The scope of the SMP is determined by the state MS4 Permit requirements and includes the following six minimum control measures:
