National Research Council wants "radical changes" to US stormwater regulations
October 28, 2008
The National Research Council
, a division of the National Academy of Sciences
, has released a report on "Urban Stormwater Management in the United States
". The report calls for "radical changes"
to the EPA's stormwater regulations, which could include combining all wastewater
permits in a given watershed under a single permit, requiring local authorities to beome the front-line regulators for stormwater discharges, and changing the focus of stormwater management from chemical pollutants to water volume.
Stormwater treatment and control
has become a much more significant area of concern throughout our territory, and we are able to help with products ranging from detention basins and tanks
to pumping stations
. Please feel free to contact us
with your questions.
