On December 1, 2009, EPA has issued a long-awaited final stormwater rule, impacting nearly every construction and development project in the United States. The rule imposes an enforceable numeric limit on stormwater discharges from large construction sites, requires monitoring to ensure compliance with the numeric limit, and requires nearly all construction sites to implement a range of erosion and sediment controls and pollution prevention measures. The rule took effect on February 1, 2010, while the numeric limit and associated monitoring requirements applicable to large sites will be phased in over four years. This webinar will address key issues including the new EPA rule and general requirements for NPDES permits, and legal and environmental implications of the rules.
