U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Gina McCarthy signed the final Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) General Permit Remand Rule on November 17, 2016.
EPA released a pre-publication version of the final rule, EPA’s fact sheet summary of the rule, and a mark-up version of the changes to the Phase II stormwater rule. To view and download copies of these documents, visit EPA’s website at https://www.epa.gov/npdes/stormwater-rules-and-notices#proposed.
The final rule is anticipated to be formally published in the Federal Register during the week of November 28, 2016. The final rule will be effective 30 days following the publication date in the Federal Register. Once the official Federal Register Notice is published, EPA’s response to comment document will be viewable at www.regulations.gov under Docket ID No. EPA–HQ– OW–2015–0671.
EPA requested public comments regarding three potential options for how the MS4 Phase II program might be implemented.
This webcast will discuss the MS4 Remand Rule and its potential impacts to communities throughout the U.S. We are pleased to announce that our feature speaker will be from EPA, and be available to address questions.
