ENCAP Erosion Control Minute – USEPA ELG Final Rule

The next episode of the ENCAP Erosion Control Minute will break down the final rule on the Effluent Limitiation Guidelines for the NPDES construction general permit by the USEPA. While the state of Illinois is still three years away from the expiration of the statewide NPDES permit, the USEPA Effluent Limitation Guidelines will serve to dramatically change the way we plan, design, and construct erosion and sediment control practices on construction sites. With such important regulatory steps being made, the precedents that are set in this rule will likely be the subject of many developments within the industry in the years to come.
