    The EPA has prepared draft changes to the renewed Construction General Permit which affect stormwater and construction site discharges.  These changes will go into effect in 2017.   The changes can be found at this link:  The 45-day comment period for these changes ends May 26th.   The NCDEQ is requesting a one year extension of its general permit (NCG01) that expires July 31st of this year.  The resulting changes could also take effect in 2017. 

    In summary, the proposed changes to the draft 2017 document apply to SWPPP documentation and construction site practices (including containment of PCBs), as well as including and requiring the same minimum site inspection frequency for snowmelt runoff discharges. 

    Proposed changes to future permit renewals for which the EPA is soliciting comments apply to further SWPPP documentation, an increase in construction site inspection frequencies, and further modification of the standard deadline to complete site stabilization.  These proposed changes are also open for comment.
