EPA's Notice of Propose Rulemaking for Clean Water Act Hazardous Substances Spill Prevention

On June 15, 2018, a proposed regulatory action to establish no additional regulatory requirements under the Clean Water Act (CWA) section 311(j)(1)(C) authority for CWA hazardous substances (HS) discharges prevention was signed by EPA's Administrator. EPA based this proposal on a review of existing regulations and analysis of the frequency and impacts of reported CWA HS discharges. The purpose of this action is to notify the public of EPA's proposed approach and provide an opportunity for public comment.
