Subject: We oppose stormwater Draft Permit Proposal that Would Lead to Massive Cost Increases and jeopardize critical public works and other construction projects

Letter excerpt:

As organizations representing infrastructure, transportation, education, labor, agriculture, local government, water, business and others, we would like to share our concerns about the proposed statewide construction stormwater general permit (Permit) that would apply to all public and private construction projects throughout California. The Permit as currently drafted is unworkable and would significantly increase the cost of and jeopardize the completion of thousands of projects throughout the state including state and local transportation infrastructure, school construction, electric and water utility infrastructure, housing projects and more.
