MS4 (Stormwater) Permit Discussion w/DDOE
On February 2nd at Noon (1100 15th Street NW, 11th Floor) the DC Environmental Network (DCEN) will host an important and critical discussion about plans to implement the District's NPDES (National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System) Permit that authorizes stormwater discharges but more importantly requires implementation of stormwater controls that may help in keeping pollution out of our rivers and creeks.
The current permit includes a list of control measures to implement including green roof installation requirements, tree canopy enhancements, and other programs and activities to curb polluted stormwater. Some of these measure include specific targets and dates to complete while others do not have much specificity as to when or how they will be implemented.
Representatives from the District Department of the Environment (DDOE) will brief DCEN on the details as to what we need to achieve in 2012 and how they will implement the most important stormwater control measures. Our DDOE panelists will include:
- Christophe Tulou, Director, District Department of the Environment
- Hamid Karimi, PhD., Deputy Director, Natural Resources Administration, District Department of the Environment
- Jeffrey Seltzer, Stormwater Administrator, Stormwater Management Division, Natural Resources Administration, District Department of the Environment
The health and economic vitality of our city is tied to our rivers and creeks. Aggressive implementation of this permit could be the most important determining factor in the next few years towards making real progress to restore the Anacostia River, Potomac River and Rock Creek.
All are urged strongly (and welcome) to attend.
