The Northeast Wisconsin Stormwater Consortium (NEWSC) is a consortium of 41 permitted MS4 (Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems) that is led by the Fox Wolf Watershed Alliance. NEWSC helps communities work together to meet and exceed Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources stormwater regulations.
- NEWSC focuses on addressing urban contributions to water quality pollution in northeast Wisconsin, and uses member dues to fund outreach efforts.
- A major component of the NEWSC is the Renew our Waters-Every Choice Counts outreach campaign, which teaches residents to have a positive impact on local waters at their home. The campaign offers a variety of educational materials for nontraditional stormwater audiences like green houses, power washers, restaurants and more.
- NEWSC also targets educational efforts to industries that have disproportionately high impacts on area waterways, including erosion control training for construction professionals and winter parking lot and sidewalk maintenance for public and private contractors.
