NTAEP Monthly Meeting - 3514 W. Airport Freeway, Irving, Texas 75062
11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Next Meeting is October 20, 2021
Tara Gilbert with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality will be presenting "Changes to the Renewed MSGP."
Tara Gilbert is a Compliance Assistance Specialist for Texas Commission on Environmental Quality’s DFW region. She received a B.S. in Environmental Science from Baylor University in 2019. She works on multiple project teams within the section to produce outreach material and provide educational guidance to the public.
The presentation will provide an overview of TCEQ’s Small Business and Local Government Assistance (SBLGA) Section and the changes to the renewed industrial stormwater permit. The SBLGA Section offers a variety of resources to assist small regulated entities without the threat of enforcement. SBLGA offers multimedia assistance across the state, and a substantial portion of assistance for the past several weeks has focused on industrial stormwater. With the 2021 renewal of the Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) for industrial stormwater discharges, over ten thousand facilities regulated under this permit are now required to renew authorizations and comply with updated requirements. Tara will discuss how the 2021 permit differs from the 2016 draft and how facilities subject to MSGP coverage can obtain authorization.
