The MRGP — which was developed as one of the Act 64, the Vermont Clean Water Act, required programs to improve water quality statewide — identifies, prioritizes, and remediates stormwater runoff from municipal roads. Upon issuance of the final MRGP, municipalities are required to submit a Notice of Intent (NOI) to the Agency to obtain coverage under the re-issued MRGP.
