- Shaping the direction of the national NPDES permit program;
- Producing policies and regulations;
- Developing technical and administrative tools to support permit issuance;
- Tracking and managing critical information related to permit issuance, permit quality, and point source pollution abatement;
- Overseeing the programs managed by the States and Regional Offices; and
