A Little Help from the City of Atlanta
The City of Atlanta has developed a set of CAD ES&PC Plans that can be used as a basic guidance document/template for plan design. The purpose is to assist both Design Professionals and Plan Reviewers for Construction Projects in the City of Atlanta. The CAD plan available on the GASWCC website under Documents, is for GAR 100001 Stand Alone projects only. There will soon be GAR 100002 Infrastructure and GAR100003 Common Development plans as well. The existing plan contains all of the standard notes, BMP details, and site specific requirements to be shown on the plans. The plan also has a numbering system which corresponds to the Plan Review Checklist document. CLICK HERE

EPA's 2010 FOCUS
During 2010, EPA is focusing on homebuilding construction, big box store construction, and ready mix concrete with crushed stone and sand and gravel operations, and explore whether other sectors, e.g., ports, road building operations, contribute to impairment of water bodies.
To reduce water impairments from storm water, EPA developed the Clean Water Act: Storm Water Strategy Summary of 2008 - 2010 (PDF) (2pp, 30K, About PDF). The Storm Water strategy aims to achieve maximum compliance with environmental regulations in order to protect human health and the environment. EPA uses compliance assistance, compliance monitoring and enforcement tools, as appropriate, towards achieving goals and environmental outcomes of the strategy.MORE

American Smelting and Refining Company (ASARCO) Bankruptcy Settlement
Before emission standards existed
As a result of the largest environmental bankruptcy in U.S. history, EPA, along with other federal and state agencies pursued and received $1.79 billion to fund environmental cleanup and restoration under a bankruptcy reorganization of ASARCO. ASARCO is a copper mining company based in Arizona that is responsible for sites around the country that are contaminated with hazardous waste.
Asarco was fined $3.6 million in 1996 for discharging lead and other pollutants into Missouri. Asarco was closed in July of 1997.
In total, the payment will address environmental cleanup and restoration at more than 80 sites around the country. It will also be placed into accounts at the Department of Interior and the Department of Agriculture to pay for natural resource restoration. MORE
