Every five years, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) revises its Construction General Permit (CGP). The newest version, which was effective in February 2017, adds some new provisions that have changed the federal regulatory landscape for construction projects. In addition, state and local regulators may require additional preventive measures.
Do you share liability with other operators on your site? Is your construction discharge authorized? Do you know if your Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) is available to the public? Is your training on track? Is your SWPP Plan up to date?
Your company must understand what these changes will mean for your projects, as more resources, time and effort are likely needed to comply with your storm water management obligations. New regulations also mean enforcement action risks from permitting agencies and the potential for debilitating enforcement issues and hefty fines.
