EPA is preparing to reissue the Construction General Permit (CGP). The general permit, issued under the Clean Water Act's National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System, authorizes stormwater discharges from construction activities.
EPA's current CGP became effective on February 16, 2012, and will expire on February 16, 2017. Once finalized, the draft CGP will replace the 2012 CGP.
The draft permit has a 45-day public comment period which will end on May 26, 2016.
Comments may be submitted at www.regulations.gov under docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OW-2015-0828. A final permit will be issued prior to expiration of the current CGP.
