EPA PROPOSES RULE ON SMALL MUNICIPAL SEPARATE STORM SEWER SYSTEMS (MS4S)

EPA is proposing a change to its regulations on how small MS4s obtain coverage under National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System general permits. EPA’s proposal would revise small MS4 regulations to ensure that the permitting authority determines the adequacy of best management practices and other requirements, and provides public notice and the opportunity to request a public hearing on the requirements for each MS4. The proposal would not establish any new substantive requirements for small MS4s. The proposal is in response to a decision by the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, which ordered EPA to finalize the rule by no later than Nov. 17, 2016. http://www.epa.gov/npdes/npdes-stormwater-proposed-ms4-general-permit-remand-rule
