New NPDES Construction Permit in Effect, August 1, 2018.

The new National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit for construction activity has become effective as of August 1, 2018. Permittees covered under the old 2013 permit will need to complete their projects within 18 months of the issuance date of the new permit or revise the Stormwater pollution prevention plan for the project to reflect the new requirements.

A red lined version of the permit showing all changes from the draft permit, public comments received and response to public comments is available on the construction stormwater webpage.
