A Timeline of Recent Stormwater Regulatory Policies
The earliest law to address water quality in the United States was the Federal Water Pollution Control Act of 1948, which in 1972 was amended and became known as the Clean Water Act (CWA). The CWA is the primary law governing stormwater, but it is complimented, or some may argue, complicated, by various state and local laws that have also been enacted in more recent years, often with more stringent regulatory requirements. The following timeline provides an overview of some of the more recent developments in stormwater policy that may affect your business. For additional information, we invite you to contact us, and to follow our blog for updates to this timeline, and our other useful resources.
