Connecticut Stormwater

Connecticut State Overview

The state of Connecticut and its Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) has successfully implemented a stormwater management program which is comprised of several different sectors and areas of stormwater pollution prevention. The DEEP’s regulations on “Stormwater and Dewatering Wastewaters from Construction Activities,” require operators of a construction site to apply for coverage under their Construction General Permit (CGP) if their project will result in disturbances of the following:

  • One (1) or more total acres of land area regardless of project phasing.
  • A larger plan of development (such as a subdivision), the estimate of total acres of site disturbance shall include, but is not limited to, road and utility construction, individual lot construction (i.e., house, driveway, septic system, etc.), and all other construction associated with the overall plan, regardless of the individual parties responsible for construction of these various elements.

For any project that will be disturbing a total area between one (1) and five (5) acres, the permittee is required to adhere to the erosion and sediment control land use regulations of the town in which the land disturbing activity is taking place. As long as the permittee adheres to the town’s erosion and sediment control guidelines and receives written approval for the proposed erosion and sediment control measures, he/she is not required to register for a general permit.

WEB01: Low Impact Development and the Basics of Bioretention

Type: Webinar | Price: Free!

Enroll Now Learn More

Program Overview

Low Impact Development (LID) embodies a paradigm shift in how land is developed and how storm water is managed from that development. LID is achieved through the implementation of techniques that mimic pre-development hydrologic conditions by addressing storm water runoff at the source point versus the “end of the pipe.” The bioretention system, which reduces runoff volumes while decreasing pollutant loads found in nonpoint source flow, represents one of the most commonly applied Low Impact Development devices in green infrastructure today. This webinar will introduce the basics of bioretention systems, how they work, why they work and how they can save on project costs.
