    The EPA published the 2017 Construction General Permit (CGP) which became effective February 16, 2017, and replaces the 2012 version. The five-year permit includes all stormwater discharges at construction sites over an acre in size.  In summary, the changes to this permit apply to SWPPP documentation and construction site practices, including stricter discharge limitations from polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), further limiting of construction and domestic wastes from sites exposed to precipitation and stormwater, and further modification of the standard deadline to complete site stabilization, among other practices.  An overview of the NPDES program, including the permit and FAQs can be found at EPA’s NPDES website

    Changes to the national permit may affect the next North Carolina NPDES permit (NCG01).  The last permit was extended in August of 2016 and expires July 31, 2018.
