Preliminary 2006 Effluent Guidelines Program Plan

EPA sought comment on a preliminary plan for reviewing effluent guidelines, regulations that improve water quality by controlling discharges from industrial sources. This is the first step in meeting that requirement for the 2006-07 planning cycle.

EPA held a public meeting on this preliminary Plan on September 20, 2005 in Washington, DC. To find additional information supporting the preliminary Plan, visit Regulation.gov, searching for Docket ID No. OW-2004-0032 among EPA "closed for comment" documents.
