We are asking for informal comments on the preliminary draft sections provided for the Municipal Stormwater General Permits (Phase I, Eastern and Western Phase II), as well as the Stormwater Management Manuals (Eastern and Western). The permits regulate stormwater discharges from municipal separate stormwater sewer systems. The manuals provide guidance for complying with the permits.
