National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System

Complete, Cost Effective Solutions

In March, 2003, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency implemented Phase II of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES). Currently, the regulations apply to virtually all construction activities. Any construction site of one acre or more must comply with the Phase II regulations. NPDES requirements pertain to simple erosion control on slopes, drainage channels, shorelines and the control of sediment. State and local officials also regulate the control and release of in-situ soil material.

Western Excelsior products are approved for use in virtually every state and for all types of projects.
