The 2017 EPA Construction General Permit

On Jan. 11, EPA issued the 2017 Construction General Permit (CGP). The 2017 CGP takes effect on midnight Feb. 16 and will stay active for five years.

Although only immediately applicable in New Mexico, Idaho, Massachusetts and New Hampshire as well as Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia, the EPA CGP serves as a model for most other states when they develop their own stormwater permitting requirements under the federal Clean Water Act.
