Yesterday the EPA released their long-awaited changes to the RMP rule which will take effect in roughly 60 days. (Don’t worry too much – the earliest actual compliance date for the new requirements is an additional year away and many of them are four years away.)
While the rule isn’t *official* until it’s published in the Federal Register, they have provided the prepublication version with commentary on their website. The document itself is 372 pages long which is impressive considering the original rule is 17 pages.
Go over to RCE Chill and read the full post for more info including a 55 page summary that lists:
- What the new text says.
- What the new text means.
- What you must do (and when you must do it!) to become compliant.
UPDATE: Updated links to Federal Register posting of the rule.
