Storm water pollution rules in Maryland


Timothy Wheeler from the Baltimore Sun reports that a compromise has been reached at the legislative level to go forward with storm-water pollution rules which are supposed to take effect on 4 May 2010.

The law and its rules require developers to better control rainfall washing off their projects so that there is no more runoff and it is no more polluted than it was before construction began. Builders also have to reduce the amount of pavement so more rain could soak into the soil naturally, instead of collecting it in large ponds or underground tanks.
