Managing Our Stormwater
Stormwater Management Master Plan
Westford has initiated a Stormwater Management Master Plan (SWMMP) that evaluates Westford's current stormwater management practices and identifies future needs for a sustainable stormwater program. This plan presents a pragmatic, cost-effective approach to addressing drainage infrastructure needs while considering local, state and federal water quality initiatives to protect our valuable water resources now and for future generations.
