Hours of Operation
In December 1999, EPA finalized the “Phase II” regulations, which require controls on storm water discharges from the broader sector of municipalities, industries, and construction sties. Specifically for construction, the Phase II rule requires construction sites disturbing equal to or greater than one acre to control pollutants in stormwater runoff. Construction activity disturbing less than one acre requires a permit if it is part of the larger common plan of development or sale disturbing a total of one acre or greater, or is individually designated for permit coverage by the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permitting authority.
