The Act removes a provision from existing law that automatically prohibited a municipality that failed to submit a schedule for eliminating its combined sewer overflows by a specified deadline from making any connections to the combined sewer system. Failure to meet the deadline can still result in penalties under the Georgia Water Pollution Control Act, including the sewer moratorium, but the penalty will be at the discretion of the Environmental Protection Division (EPD).
