The Clean Water Act (CWA) regulates the discharge of pollutants into the waters of the United States and regulates the water quality standards for surface water. The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) established the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) program that allows industrial and municipal entities to discharge stormwater and waste water through permits with established regulatory limits and reporting requirements.
