  • The EPA has re-issued a general permit authorizing storm water discharges from construction activities, commonly known as the NPDES (National Pollution Discharge Elimination System) General Permit, which became effective in Massachusetts as of August 4, 2003. This construction stormwater general permit replaces the previous construction general permit that expired in February of 2003. Under this revised permit, certain filings for Massachusetts projects, including ongoing projects, must be made by November 3, 2003.
