The EPA Regional Administrator for the New England Region has made a preliminary determination pursuant to Section 402(p) of the Clean Water Act and 40 CFR 122.26 (9)(i)(D) that storm water controls and NPDES permits are needed for discharges to waters of the United States from impervious surfaces equal to or greater than one acre in the Long Creek watershed located in South Portland, Westbrook, Scarborough, and Portland, Maine.
