Why You Should Call In

On February 16, 2012, the EPA approved the new federal Construction General Permit (CGP), which replaces the agency's 2008 CGP and incorporates the requirements of the Construction and Development Rule issued by EPA in December 2009.

In this one-hour TeleBriefing, our distinguished panel, featuring the EPA attorney who led the permit team that issued the 2012 CGP, as well as a leading environmental lawyer and a stormwater engineer, will steer you through the key issues arising out of the new CGP. Panelists will discuss the permit architecture, how this permit differs from the previous Construction General Permit, areas of controversy and potential litigation, and tips for complying with the new Permit's technical requirements.
