Pennsylvania: Water

October 2015



Update Volume


Update Issue


The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection is opening for public comment its draft NPDES general permit for stormwater discharges associated with industrial activity (PAG-03), which will replace the existing PAG-03 that is set to expire December 5, 2015. Changes to PAG-03 would align the regulations with U.S. EPA’s national multisector general permit for stormwater associated with industrial activity, create new eligibility criteria where impaired waters are concerned, set new benchmarks for certain pollutants, and standardize monitoring frequency, among other changes. Written comments will be accepted until November 16, 2015. A hearing will be held if requested and if there is sufficient public interest.
