How the Ever-evolving Stormwater Regulations Affect Your Business and Community
Stormwater runoff from construction projects, certain industries, and a number of municipal stormwater systems in New Hampshire are regulated by the USEPA through a permitting system that continues to undergo changes. EPA has proposed a numeric limit for turbidity from construction site runoff and an appellate court recently ruled that logging roads are no longer exempt from stormwater regulation. Certain industrial facilities in New Hampshire, such as marinas and paper mills, require permits. Urbanized municipalities must manage the quality of stormwater in their drainage systems and are anticipating significant changes in the upcoming renewed permit. Will subdivision and site plan requirements be revised throughout the state?
