Proposed 2020 MSGP
EPA is seeking public comment on a proposed 2020 National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) for stormwater discharges from industrial activity. This proposed permit would replace the 2015 MSGP upon finalization. This proposed permit would cover stormwater discharges from industrial facilities in areas where EPA is the NPDES permitting authority. Per a 2016 settlement agreement, EPA considered recommendations outlined in a National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine's National Research Council (NRC) study.
EPA will take comments on the proposal during a 90-day comment period, which ends on June 1, 2020.
Click here to view the EPA hosted informational webcast to give an overview of the proposed changes to the permit.
Key proposed changes in the permit include:
Streamlining the permit
Eligibility for stormwater discharges to a federal CERCLA site
Eligibility related to application of coal-tar sealcoat
Discharge authorization related to enforcement action
Public sign of permit coverage
Consideration of major storm control measure enhancements
Universal benchmark monitoring for all sectors
Impaired waters monitoring
Updating benchmark values
Sectors with new benchmarks
Additional implementation measures
