New industrial stormwater permit, the Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP)

November 13, 2008

New industrial stormwater permit, the Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP)

On September 29, 2008, EPA released a new industrial stormwater permit, the Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP), regulating the discharge of stormwater from industrial facilities in 29 different industrial sectors. The MSGP 2008 replaces the MSGP 2000 that expired on October 20, 2005. The MSGP 2008 requires industrial facilities to implement and maintain site-specific stormwater control measures and to develop stormwater pollution prevention plans (SWPPPs).

This webcast will introduce industrial dischargers, members of the public, and State or Tribal permitting authorities to the new requirements of the MSGP 2008. The webcast will include a section-by-section summary of the permit’s requirements, highlight changes from the MSGP 2000, discuss SWPPP requirements, and describe how to apply for permit coverage.
