Code Ann. § 8-4-101 et seq., the Arkansas Pollution Control and Ecology Commission hereby promulgates this regulation to implement State administration of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System.

In order to receive such authorization, it is necessary for the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality to have regulations as stringent as the federal program administered by the United States Environmental Protection Agency.
