As part of the Stormwater Fund Study, a Stormwater Management Steering Committee (Steering Committee) has been established to develop better local understanding and support for enhanced stormwater management and financing. The Steering Committee is comprised of representatives from commercial and industrial businesses, non-profit organizations, planning organizations, Middletown residents and other key stakeholders. Technical support is also provided by Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management’s Office of Water Resources.
The committee is advisory in nature and is working with the Project Team to conduct the Stormwater Fund Study. The Steering Committee provides a forum for stakeholder groups representing different interest within the community to give input during the planning stages of the stormwater funding project. The Steering Committee also serves to further educate the Town Council and residents about the development process and feasibility of implementing a stormwater fund in Middletown.
