Stormwater Department

Stormwater OutflowAbout the Department

Andover’s Stormwater Department was created in December of 2005, to comply with National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES), a Federal Government Program, that requires local governmental agencies to obtain a permit and monitor the stormwater runoff in their jurisdictions.

The City of Andover has to comply with Phase II of these regulations. There are a lot of different requirements stated in the permit issued to the City, ranging from public outreach to monitoring and controlling the stormwater runoff from local construction sites. This website will be a significant point in the dissemination of information for the public and contractors, in our effort to both comply with the law and improve our water quality.
