The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will host a workshop on sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs) July 14–15 in Washington, D.C. The workshop will focus on if and how the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) can address SSOs in a nationally consistent manner. The workshop will cover NPDES permitting of SSO notification and documentation; capacity, management, and operations; and the possible allowance of SSOs in certain circumstances. During the workshop, the wastewater community, NPDES permitting authorities, and environmental interests will have the opportunity to influence rulemaking slated to appear later this year. The Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.) will be represented by Government Affairs Committee Chair Bob Matthews and Co-chair Dan Ott. Check here for more information.
