EPA's 2017 General Permit Regulating Stormwater Discharges from Construction Activities Now Effective

In July 2016, Chiesa Shahinian & Giantomasi circulated a client alert discussing the proposed changes that would be incorporated in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s National Pollution Discharge Elimination System General Permit regulating Stormwater Discharges from Construction Activities (the “2017 General Permit”). On February 16, 2017, the General Permit became effective, and incorporated the new and revised provisions discussed in CSG’s July 2016 alert. Accordingly, such alert is being recirculated to remind those in the construction and development industry of the changes found in the 2017 General Permit.

Should you have any questions, concerns, or comments regarding such changes or the responsibilities necessary under the newly effective 2017 General Permit, please contact your Chiesa Shahinian & Giantomasi PC attorney or the authors listed below to discuss these issues in greater detail.
