EEI Statement on EPA's Revisions to Effluent Guidelines
WASHINGTON ​(August 31, 2020) – Edison Electric Institute (EEI) Vice President for Environment, Natural Resources, and Occupational Safety & Health Quin Shea today issued the following statement on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) final revisions to effluent guidelines.

“EEI appreciates the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency revising the technical requirements imposed on steam electric power generation facilities under the Clean Water Act. The revisions provide environmental protections in a technologically and economically achievable manner, which is critical to EEI member companies’ ability to continue providing reliable, affordable, and clean energy to U.S. homes and businesses. EEI member companies invest more than $110 billion annually to make the energy grid stronger, cleaner, smarter, more resilient, and more secure. 
“We look forward to working with EPA and other stakeholders to implement this key rulemaking.”
