Improving Water Quality Nationwide
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in their
efforts to comply with the Federal Clean Water Act, has delegated
the responsibility of implementing the National Pollutant
Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) stormwater program to
the states and local governmental agencies.
The goal of the
NPDES program is to achieve a nationwide improvement in water
quality of natural water bodies and estuaries. EPA has identified
three types of activities that will require regulation of
stormwater discharges. These are industrial activities, construction activities, municipal separate storm sewer systems.
