Multi-Sector & Industrial Stormwater Permits

The Center for Watershed Protection will hold a webcast on June 17, 2015, 1–2:30 pm EDT on Multi-Sector & Industrial Stormwater Permits. Many localities are focused on MS4 permits, which include a pollution prevention and good housekeeping minimum measure. However, another important facet of NPDES and state permitting is stormwater permits for industrial and multi-sector facilities, including both public and private sites. Possible examples include public works yards, concrete batch plants, power plants, asphalt paving, mining, gas extraction, landfills, recycling facilities, transportation facilities, and wastewater plants, among other categories. The permitting of these facilities can be complicated, and perhaps confusing for MS4s that must also comply with minimum measure #6. This webcast will feature insights on the permitting process, tools available for facility inventories and inspections, and BMPs applicable to these types of site. For more information, click here.
