Outfalls


NPDES Permit for Stormwater Outfalls

Massport's NPDES Permit (No. MA0000787) provides water quality standards for stormwater discharges from the North, West, Porter Street, and Maverick Street outfalls (Table and Map below). The North and West Outfalls both have end-of-pipe pollution control equipment for the removal of debris and floating oils. These outfalls handle most of the stormwater that is discharged from the fueling and maintenance areas at Logan Airport. Massport retains an emergency response contractor to monitor and maintain the pollution control systems, and to respond to spills and emergencies.
