The Role of Local Governments in Implementing the NPDES Stormwater Program for Construction Sites
This new brochure provides local governments with a brief overview of the NPDES Stormwater Program on construction sites. Local governments can then provide this information to people in the construction industry who might need NPDES permit coverage. Stormwater permits require many operators of construction sites to implement steps to prevent sediment and other pollutants from washing off into nearby streams, rivers, lakes, and coastal waters. Versions of both the Federal and State brochures are available. May be customized. EPA 833-F-06-0022.
