EPA Announces Framework to Help Local Governments Manage Stormwater Runoff and Wastewater

June 29, 2012

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued a new framework document, titled the Integrated Municipal Stormwater and Wastewater Planning Approach Framework.

 

The goal of the framework is to help local governments meet their Clean Water Act obligations by developing voluntary storm and wastewater management plans and implementing effective integrated approaches that will protect public health by reducing overflows from wastewater systems and pollution from stormwater.

In developing the framework, EPA worked in close coordination with a variety of stakeholders, including publicly owned treatment works, state water permitting authorities, local governments, and nonprofit environmental groups.
