Industrial Fact Sheet Series for Activities Covered by EPA’s MSGP

The MSGP (PDF) (247 pp, 2.09MB) regulates discharges of stormwater from 29 different industrial sectors (PDF) (7 pp, 255K). The sectors group similar facilities by the nature of industrial activity, type of materials handled, and material management practices employed. The sectors are based on the definition of "stormwater discharge associated with industrial activity" found at 40 CFR 122.26 (b)(14)(i)-(ix), (xi). Most sectors are based on a facility’s Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) code.
