US industry urges delay in NPDES permit date

The US industry association, CropLife America (CLA), has urged the EPA to consider seeking an extension to the deadline for establishing a general permit for pesticide applications over or near water to comply with the Clean Water Act (CWA). The Agency must issue a general National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit by April 9th 2011 due to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals overturning the EPA’s 2006 regulation exempting pesticide applicators from NPDES permits ( Agrow No 559, p 14).
