  • On November 30, 2012, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued its final rule revising the Phase I stormwater regulations under the Clean Water Act to clarify that stormwater discharges from logging roads do not constitute stormwater discharges associated with industrial activity and that such discharges do not require a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit.
