EPA signed the new 2022 Construction General Permit (2022 CGP) on January 18, 2022. It becomes effective February 17, 2022, and replaces the 2017 CGP. The CGP outlines requirements for covered construction projects located in states and territories where EPA is the administrating agency for stormwater permitting under the Clean Water Act.
