EPA Issues Draft Guidance Clarifying Wastewater Permit Requirements Under Maui Decision

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The following statement was released today by National Mining Association (NMA) President and CEO Rich Nolan in support of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s draft guidance clarifying wastewater permit requirements under the Maui decision:

“EPA’s draft guidance is an important step toward providing additional regulatory certainty and clarity around Clean Water Act wastewater permits after many years of conflicting judicial decisions and uncertainty. When finalized, both the regulated community and permit writers will have a better understanding of how to apply the factors the Supreme Court laid out in Maui to help the mining industry and others determine if and when a permit is needed.”
