EPA Construction and Development Effluent Guidelines and Standards

The U.S. Environmental Protections Agency (EPA) has published a final rule that changes existing regulations that apply to storm water discharges from construction activities. Compliance with this regulation will result in significant reductions in the discharge of sediment and other associated pollutants to water bodies. The rule also furthers the EPA's goals of improving resiliency of the nation's waters and infrastructure to climate change by requiring permittees to provide and maintain buffers around many surface waters at construction sites and reducing downstream siltation and flooding.
