EPA Storm water proposal information

Two meetings organized by the Environmental Protection Agency regarding designated discharge sites will be held in Franklin. Storm water discharges from these sites need to be controlled according to the Clean Water Act. The practical implication of this determination is that the owners of designated discharge sites will be required to obtain permits under federal law, and will be required to undertake actions to control the discharge of storm water from their properties.

On June 22, the first meeting will be held at Tri-County Regional Vocational Technical School in Franklin from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., the EPA will briefly summarize the actions that it proposes.

Also on June 22, the second meeting will start at 7:30 p.m. The EPA will conduct a public hearing at which interested persons may make formal statements that will be entered into the legal record on the permit action.
