Current Phase: Pre-Proposal (What's this?)
In 1996 the Clean Water Act was amended to create section 312(n), "Uniform National Discharge Standards (UNDS) for Vessels of the Armed Forces." Section 312(n) directs EPA and DoD to establish national discharge standards for discharges incidental to the normal operation of a vessel of the armed forces. These national standards will preempt State discharge standards for these vessels.

This site provides summaries of priority rulemakings and priority retrospective reviews of existing regulations. We update most of the site at the beginning of each month, though some data is updated more frequently if it is time sensitive. The information on this site is not intended to and does not commit EPA to specific conclusions or actions. For example, after further analysis, EPA may decide the effects of a rule would be different or it may decide to terminate a rulemaking.
