EPA Releases Multi-Sector General Permit for Industrial Stormwater Discharges

EPA Releases Multi-Sector General Permit for Industrial Stormwater Discharges

EPA is issuing a new Stormwater Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) that will cover an estimated 4,100 industrial facilities that require NPDES permit coverage. EPA’s MSGP applies to facilities in states and territories not authorized to implement the NPDES permit program, including Alaska, Idaho, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Mexico, most U.S. territories, most Indian country lands, and several other locations. The new permit offers several improvements from the previous MSGP, including easy to understand discharge requirements; fast and easy electronic filing of Notices of Intent (NOIs) and monitoring reports; and several new web-based tools.
