For the past decade, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been developing numerous requirements for the design and permitting of facilities intended to properly manage wet weather flows. These requirements have been issued in a number of contexts and have, at times, been subject to widely varying interpretation across the country, leading to dramatically different treatment requirements. EPA's actions include issuing various combined sewer overflow (CSO) policies; developing draft regulations addressing the elimination of sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs); taking enforcement actions based on interpretations of various National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) regulations adopted under different circumstances to prohibit CSOs and SSOs; objecting to state permits intended to regulate wet weather discharges; providing informal guidance to regional offices; and creating regional office initiatives.
