Abstract:

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is the primary federal agency working to protect and restore the nation's water quality. EPA's water program develops national policies, regulations, guidance, and funding programs to protect surface water, drinking water, and ground water, and is responsible for administering the nation's water pollution control programs under the Clean Water Act. Reducing wet weather discharges is a core activity of EPA's Office of Wastewater Management. The office's programs in this area include combined sewer overflows, sanitary sewer overflows, storm water, and animal feeding operations. Several regulatory initiatives are underway to improve water quality by reducing the environmental impacts of wet weather events.
