Urban Wet Weather Flows Federal Advisory Committee

OVERVIEW

EPA established the Urban Wet Weather Flows Federal Advisory Committee to involve representative stakeholders in addressing the environmental and health problems related to urban wet weather discharges. Stakeholders comprising the Committee included municipalities, industry, commercial interests, environmental groups, State/Tribes, and technical organizations. The Committee discussed a range of cross-cutting issues associated with wet weather discharges including: improvements to the Storm Water Phase I program, the coordination of wet weather discharge control efforts on a watershed basis, and water quality standards in a wet weather context.

Members of the Committee divided into two Subcommittees to address the development of the Storm Water Phase II program and to develop a framework for addressing the impacts of Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSOs). The work of the Storm Water Phase II Subcommittee concluded prior to finalization of the Storm Water Phase II Rule. To date, the SSOs Subcommittee remains active.
