AGC Pushes EPA to Delay Proposed Limit on Dirt in Stormwater, Move Will Help Construction Industry Avoid Billions in New Costs - VIDEO

The agency’s announcement that it is delaying its effort to protect the Earth from dirt gives temporary relief for struggling contractors.  AGC’s chief executive officer, Stephen E. Sandherr, issued a statement in response to the decision by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to withdraw proposed “numeric limits” on the amount of dirt the agency will allow in stormwater from construction sites. "We will continue to fight this," said Sandherr.
