Is your business complying with stormwater rules?

If not, you could be in for an unpleasant surprise.

The law firm of Saul Ewing is alerting its clients and friends to a recently proposed consent decree between the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Ryland, one of the nation's largest homebuilders. 

Under the proposal, Ryland would be required to establish and implement a company-wide management, reporting and training program for stormwater compliance--in addition to paying a $625,000 penalty--to resolve EPA enforcement actions under the Clean Water Act.

Saul Ewing notes that the agreement goes beyond the current regulatory requirements and could become a template that the EPA or a state could seek to impose in future cases involving stormwater violations.
