Abstract:

Under the Water Quality Act of 1987, storm water discharge permits are to be in pace by 1 October 1992. Federally-owned collection systems are designated as nonmunicipal systems, and therefore are required to meet the rules dealing with storm water discharges associated with industrial activities. Most Army installations will be affected because the definition of an industrial activity includes several activities not typically considered as industrial, including waste water treatment plants, some landfills, waste recycling areas, scrap yards, and hazardous materials waste treatment, storage or waste disposal facilities. Application deadlines included.
