The Federal Clean Water Act of 1972 regulates the discharge of pollutants into the U.S. waterways. In 1987 Congress required the EPA to develop regulations for storm water discharges. The National Urban Runoff Program indicated "storm water runoff from cities and industrial activities (including construction activities) carried pollutants to our nation's waterbodies." In 1994, the State of Michigan began issuing permit coverage as a result of the federal regulations through the Michigan Storm Water Program.
Various industrial facilities are required to obtain permits for their discharge of storm water. Construction sites that disturb one acre or more of land are also required to obtain permits for their storm water discharges.
