The Clean Water Act of 1972 first introduced us to Federal standards associated with clean drinking water. Phase I and later Phase II of the Water Quality Act (1987) further identified the municipalities, construction sites and industries of the requirements for stormwater quality permits through the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES).
The regulations affect us by how we can conduct work at construction sites, handle and store our chemicals and hazardous waste, and prevent the offsite discharge of impacted surface stormwater runoff into our watersheds. Stormwater quality is important to us all. We all share in the environmental stewardship of drinking water in both surface and groundwater resources.
