This template was prepared by EPA, in collaboration, with an ECOS Workgroup to strengthen the transparency of the NPDES real time review process. EPA conducts real time reviews under the authority of the CWA to provide oversight of authorized state NPDES programs. Real time reviews consist of reviews of selected draft or proposed NPDES permits the states intends to issue. This is a shared governance approach where states and EPA work together to fulfill their statutory and regulatory responsibilities.
