Organization(s) Environmental Protection Agency - Region 1
Project Description Jack Healey, Chris Jendras, and Abby Swaine, working with direction from Thelma Murphy (EPA Region 1- NE permitting authority), continue to conduct outreach on Phase II of the EPA's National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) stormwater regulations. The requirements are prevention-oriented and address pollutants that both EPA and communities are concerned about. They work mainly in NH and MA, the two NE states where EPA is the permitting authority, but RI and ME have also requested and received help. Over the past two years, they have conducted:

-intensive outreach on the stormwater general permit for construction,

-basic workshops for the regulated communities,

-workshops for "industrial" facilities (i.e., wastewater treatment plants) operated by communities, and

-training on illicit discharge detection and elimination (IDDE) for the regulated communities.

Jack has also visited many regulated entities to find out how they are progressing in implementing the six-part stormwater management programs that EPA requires. He has learned that these communities need more guidance on how to create good construction and development oversight programs, so EPA will provide workshops on that topic. If resources allow, they may then offer detailed "how to inspect a construction site" training for community staff, workshops on "good housekeeping" at community facilities, and/or training for "non-traditional" regulated entities like universities and institutions.
