EEI Statement on EPA's Proposed Revisions to Effluent Guidelines

WASHINGTON (November 4, 2019) - 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) proposed revisions to effluent guidelines.

EEI appreciates the process the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is undertaking to reevaluate the technical requirements imposed on steam electric power generation facilities under the Clean Water Act. 

“EEI member companies invest more than $100 billion annually to make the energy grid stronger, cleaner, smarter, more resilient, and more secure. The Clean Water Act requirements that advance environmental protections in a technologically and economically achievable manner are critical to EEI member companies’ ability to provide reliable, affordable, and increasingly clean energy to U.S. homes and businesses.

“EEI looks forward to analyzing the details of today’s proposed rule and to working with EPA and other stakeholders as the agency moves to finalize this key rulemaking.”
