CWB Creates NPDES Severe Weather Preparedness FAQs

Posted on Jul 17, 2023 in Announcements

The Department of Health (DOH), Clean Water Branch (CWB) has created new FAQs with recommendations for steps Permittees with construction sites and industrial facilities can take to prepare for severe weather events. With tropical storm Calvin projected to impact the State in the upcoming days, Permittees should prepare their sites and facilities for any potential impacts due to the storm. When a severe weather event is projected to impact the State, Permittees should take reasonable steps to secure their site or facility to reduce or eliminate the risk of discharging pollutants to State waters. Even during severe weather events, Permittees are still responsible for reducing or eliminating water pollution from their site or facility.

The FAQs document is available on our Permitting FAQs page at:
