Will New EPA Storm Water Rules Affect NJDEP Regulations?

In the wake of Superstorm Sandy, everyone is more concerned with keeping the toxicity levels in our water down and engaging in more kinds of chemical testing and environmental testing like storm water sampling to help this cause.

The EPA, however, is thinking about taking a different approach – at least for new developments. In an effort to keep more storm water runoff out of local bodies of water, it looks like the EPA is going to force new developments to retain more storm water at their facilities than is required at businesses with already-completed infrastructure.

It would seem like this proposed new rule will make for changes in NJDEP regulations as well, so it’s important that businesses stay on top of the latest requirements for sanitary discharge and discharge permits. If you have any questions about how this might impact you, feel free to contact New Jersey Analytical Laboratories.
