The Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.) and the National Municipal Stormwater Alliance (NMSA) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to support the stormwater sector and to help advance effective stormwater programs for the protection of public health and the environment.

WEF and WEF’s Stormwater Institute helped form NMSA, a nonprofit that works to support, educate, and represent Municipal Separate Stormwater Sewer System (MS4) permittees and other organizations affected by stormwater runoff.

The organizations have agreed to work together to deliver high-quality information and programs to their respective memberships. They have pledged to participate in each other’s stormwater steering committees and to work toward providing new opportunities for member engagement. As part of the 3-year agreement, the organizations will identify ways to collaborate, such as by planning publications and events; sharing research findings and technical materials; identifying mutually beneficial projects, technical experts, and thought leaders; and dual promotion of stormwater activities and related communications with constituents and federal agencies.

“This partnership allows WEF to increase our service to the more than 7500 MS4 permittees across the country and further establish the WEF Stormwater Institute as a center of excellence for the stormwater sector,” said WEF Executive Director Eileen O’Neill.
