Stormwater Permit

Re: Proposed Re issuance of the General Permit for the Discharge of Storm water Associated with Industrial Activity Permit without Modifications

Dear Permittee:

The current Industrial Stormwater general permit will expire on September 30, 2016. The current permit is proposed to be renewed without modifications for the period effective from October 1, 2016 through September 30, 2018. Current registrants will not be required to reregister to maintain coverage under the general permit. However, be advised that you must continue to comply with the terms and conditions of the general permit. The general permit’s outfall monitoring program will continue in effect during this renewal period and any sampling exemptions already earned through the benchmark monitoring provisions of the general permit will remain in effect. No additional aquatic toxicity monitoring will be required.

The Commissioner intends to issue a new industrial general permit with modifications prior to October 1, 2018. The Department will, in the near future, publish and seek public comment on a notice of tentative decision to issue a new industrial general permit with modifications.

Please do not respond to this list serve notice. If you have any questions, please call the Stormwater Group staff at 860-424-3018 and contact the Water Permitting and Enforcement Division’s “Engineer of the Day” at (860) 424-3025.
