EPA Seeks Comments on Litigation-Driven Changes to Construction and Development Water Rules
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has proposed changes to its Clean Water Act effluent limitations guidelines and standards for the Construction and Development point source category. EPA is proposing these changes pursuant to a settlement agreement to resolve litigation. This proposed rule would withdraw the numeric discharge standards, which are currently stayed, and change several of the non-numeric provisions of the existing rule.
Comments on these proposed changes must be received on by EPA on or before May 31, 2013.
