EPA Releases Green Infrastructure Permitting and Enforcement Fact Sheets

The U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has released a series of six fact sheets on incorporating green infrastructure measures into National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System wet weather programs.

The series builds upon existing EPA authority, guidance and agreements to describe how EPA and state permitting and enforcement professionals can work with permittees to include green infrastructure measures as part of control programs.

The six fact sheets and four supplements address storm water permits, total maximum daily loads, combined sewer overflow long-term control plans and enforcement actions.

The series is available at: http://water.epa.gov/infrastructure/greeninfrastructure/gi_regulatory.cfm#permittingseries.
