The agency said in a press release that it plans to propose a rule to control stormwater from newly developed and redeveloped sites, and to take final action no later than November 2012. In support of this rulemaking, the EPA is proposing to require three different groups to complete questionnaires about current stormwater management practices: 1) the owners, operators, developers, and contractors of newly and redeveloped sites; 2) the owners and operators of municipal separate storm sewer systems; and 3) states and territories.
The draft survey would require detailed information about stormwater management and control practices, local regulations, and baseline financial information. The proposed survey will be open for public comment for 60 days following publication in the Federal Register
