EPA Final 2008 Construction General Permit

July 01, 2008

EPA Final 2008 Construction General Permit

On June 30, EPA issued a final 2008 Construction General Permit (CGP) that covers discharges of stormwater from certain construction sites. Because EPA is in the process of developing a national regulation (called an Effluent Limitations Guideline) for the construction and development industry, this permit contains substantially the same terms and conditions as the 2003 CGP and has been issued for a two-year time period. The new permit applies only to "new" construction sites (e.g. those that have started construction on or after June 30, 2008 or those that started previously, but did not obtain permit coverage under the 2003 CGP).
