EPA, DOD To Draft Stormwater MOU for Federal Facilities

During the next 6 months, the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) will work with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to draft a memorandum of understanding. The memo is a response to DOD’s concerns about EPA’s original draft stormwater permit for D.C., which set more stringent standards for federal facilities including a 1.7-inch retention standard compared to the 1.2-inch standard for non-government property. EPA removed this language, but through the memo, will be seeking additional commitments from federal agencies that are willing to go beyond the requirements of the stormwater permit
