EPA Proposes 2020 Multi-Sector General Permit for Stormwater Discharges Associated with Industrial Activity

March 2nd, 2020 by Ann Rippe

Proposed Rule Change
Summary: EPA is proposing the 2020 Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) for stormwater discharges associated with industrial activity. Once finalized, the proposed permit will replace EPA's 2015 MSGP that expires on June 4, 2020. The proposed revisions include streamlined and more simplified language; revisions to permit eligibility and authorization-related provisions, including eligibility for stormwater discharges to Federal CERCLA sites, eligibility relayed to application of coal-tar sealcoat, and discharge authorization related to enforcement actions; the addition of requirements for public signage of permit coverage; the addition of requirements for operators to consider implementing major storm control measure enhancements; revisions to the monitoring requirements for universal benchmark monitoring and impaired waters monitoring; updates to benchmark values and new sector-specific benchmark monitoring; new additional implementation measures (AIM) that are triggered by benchmark monitoring exceedances; and revisions to sector-specific fact sheets.
