This permit went into effect April 1, 2016 and authorizes stormwater discharge resulting from construction-related land disturbance activity on jobsites subject to the conditions of the permit. The permit is published and available for review. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact ADEM directly or your local AGC office.
The Birmingham Section started 2015 with a political reception at the Murray Building Co. jobsite at the old Merita Bread Bakery. More than 150 members were in attendance with city and state officials. Everyone enjoyed a tour of the site as well as barbecue from Joe McNabb and Hendrix Chevrolet.
