Guest Editorial: Meeting the New Effluent Limit Guidelines

I came across a book entitled The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook on the used bookrack at the secondhand bookstore in my town. I purchased the only copy, immediately recognizing its potential value, and because it was 75 cents. Turns out, it was money well spent. The book details how to

Easing the Regulatory Burden

To some, the EPA’s final rule on construction-and-development (C&D) effluent limitations guidelines might appear to be a case of costly, overly burdensome regulation. But landscape designers and permitting authorities would do well to recognize that familiarity with specifics of the new rule means that it need not be so burdensome
