EPA Sets Schedule for National Stormwater Rulemaking

After several short extensions, EPA has released official dates for the National Stormwater Rulemaking: June 10, 2013 for release of the proposed rule and December 10, 2014 for release of the final rule.  These dates are a result of negotiations between EPA and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF), which was a legally required action consistent with the letter of agreement signed between these two groups that established initial rulemaking milestone dates.  It is expected that EPA will continue work to gather information as well as analyze costs and benefits on the rule through the summer and into the fall before assembling a draft proposed rule likely to be submitted to the Office of Management and Budget in early 2013.
