The Environmental Protection Agency says it will drop the numeric limit it set for stormwater runoff at construction sites. That move helps settle a lawsuit filed by the National Association of Home Builders, Utility Water Act Group, and Wisconsin Builders Association. “The proposed numeric limits were a 'one-size-fits-nowhere' approach that would have cost a fortune to implement and would not have improved water quality,” said Jerry Deschane, WBA executive vice president.
