EPA Postpones Compliance Dates for Effluent Limitations Guidelines and Standards for the Steam Electric Power Generating Point Source Category
By a letter dated April 12, 2017, the EPA Administrator announced EPA's decision to reconsider the final rule that amends the effluent limitations guidelines and standards for the steam electric point source category under the Clean Water Act, published in the Federal Register on November 3, 2015. These regulations have been challenged in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, Southwestern Electric Power Co., et al. v. EPA, No. 15- 60821. EPA is postponing these compliance dates pending judicial review.
