EPA invites public input on stormwater rules
This month, in five cities throughout the nation, including Dallas, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) held five listening sessions to provide information to the public about potential changes to stormwater regulations. According to the EPA, these potential regulations would help to reduce stormwater discharges that can harm water quality in nearby waterways.
EPA will accept written comments on the preliminary rulemaking considerations until Feb. 26. For more information on the listening sessions and the potential rule, see http://www.epa.gov/npdes/stormwater/rulemaking, and for instructions for submitting written comments, see http://www.epa.gov/npdes/regulations/fedreg_swmanagement.pdf.
