PROVIDING THE TOOLS TO HELP IMPLEMENT THE NEW STORM WATER PHASE II RULE
Abstract:The Storm Water Phase II Rule, published in the Federal Register on December 8, 1999, brings approximately 5,000 small municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4s) and over 100,000 small construction sites into the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permitting program by 2003. This rule requires operators of small MS4s in urbanized areas and small construction sites disturbing 1-5 acres to obtain NPDES permit coverage and implement controls to prevent and control storm water discharges. In addition, the rule allows some industrial facilities which have no exposure of industrial activities to storm water runoff to be excluded from the permitting program.
EPA is supporting implementation of this rule through the development of a ‘tool box.’ This tool box will consist of fact sheets, guidance, a menu of BMPs, an information clearinghouse, training and outreach efforts, technical research, support for demonstration projects, and compliance monitoring/assistance tools.
