Contractor Input Needed for Draft 2017 Construction General Permit

U.S. EPA Proposes Draft, Gives Short 45-Day Comment Period

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is asking for public input on its proposed 2017 Construction General Permit, which authorizes stormwater discharge from construction sites. Although the Agency’s general permit directly applies in only a handful of states and territories, it serves as a national model for state-issued Construction General Permits. AGC needs your help in crafting comments on how the proposed permit will significantly impact construction operations and overall environmental management on regulated construction sites. Please provide any comments to Leah Pilconis by May 6. AGC has prepared a discussion document to facilitate members’ input.
