Significant Stormwater Permit Changes Underway; FREE AGC Webinar June 1
AGC Needs Member Feedback

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed to revise its construction general permit (CGP) that regulates stormwater discharges from sites where EPA is the permitting authority. This affects ALL construction firms EVERYWHERE because states that run their own stormwater permit programs generally follow EPA’s lead in adopting enhanced protections. The draft CGP includes SIGNIFICANT changes that would increase the costs, labor, and paperwork burdens and liability for construction site operators tasked with stormwater compliance. You need to be involved!
AGC is actively soliciting industry input on the proposed permit modifications and invites all Chapters and members to participate in a free members-only webinar on June 1, 1:00 to 3:00 pm EDT, to discuss the real-world, practical implications of the proposed permit modifications and to gather information from construction professionals.

Please click here to review 26 questions from the draft CGP on which AGC would like contractor members’ input. (You DO NOT need to respond to every question!) Members’ input is crucial and will help shape AGC’s comments and recommendations to the EPA on the proposed permit language!

Details on the most significant proposed permit modifications are available here. The draft CGP is online.
