End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental Information


EPA is developing proposed effluent limitations guidelines and standards for the C&D Point Source Category under authority of the Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C. 1251 et seq.). The C&D effluent guidelines will establish technology-based standards for discharges from construction sites regulated by the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES). The C&D rule will cover construction activities associated with new development and re-development. The regulations will address stormwater runoff from construction sites during the active phase of construction, as well as post-construction runoff. The industrial sectors which are being examined during the rulemaking include residential buildings, non-residential buildings, heavy construction, and land development. Additional information is available on the C&D website at​ost/​guide/​construction/​.

The meetings will provide an update on the development of the proposed rule. EPA will discuss the data collection efforts, the potential technology options, and the schedule for the C&D rulemaking. The meetings are not a mechanism for submitting formal comments. The meetings will not be recorded by a reporter nor transcribed for inclusion in the administrative record for the C&D rulemaking. Limited seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

A more detailed agenda and other documents related to the C&D project will be available at the meetings. For those unable to attend a meeting, EPA will make documents available at the EPA website listed above, and they can be obtained by an e-mail or telephone request to Eric Strassler at the above address.
