New EPA Storm water rules may be coming …

EPA is seeking input on the following preliminary regulatory considerations on storm water management:

  1. expand the area subject to federal stormwater regulations;
  2. establish specific requirements to control stormwater discharges from new development and redevelopment;
  3. develop a single set of consistent stormwater requirements for all municipal separate storm sewer systems;
  4. require those sewer systems to address stormwater discharges in areas of existing development through retrofitting the sewer system or drainage area with improved stormwater control measures; and
  5. explore specific stormwater provisions to protect sensitive areas.

The agency has planned a series of meetings to solicit ideas and comments from the public. Click here for dates and locations.
