The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) that would, if adopted, increase the maximum civil penalty
for most violations of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act and other environmental statutes from $27,500 to $32,500. The increase is intended to account for inflation. Comments on the NPRM should be submitted by August 4, 2003.
