USING WATERSHED PLANNING FOR PHASE II STORM WATER NPDES COMPLIANCE
Abstract:The current national strategy for accomplishing Phase II of the storm water NPDES permitting program is based on requiring jurisdiction-based permits without involving watershed planning. The State of Michigan has adopted a General Permit that is available today on a voluntary basis to gain early compliance with the Phase II regulations. This voluntary permit requires that a single watershed management plan be developed for all political jurisdictions located within a watershed. Following a presentation of how these two permit options are used, the two approaches are compared and conclusions and recommendations are presented.
