    An industrial facility that does not discharge may formally opt for exclusion from obtaining an Industrial Storm Water Permit by signing and submitting a No Discharge form to the DWQ.

  • No Exposure Certification: PDF
    An industrial facility may opt for exclusion from an Industrial Storm Water Permit by submitting a No Exposure Certification that is available online or as a hard copy. A condition of no exposure exists when all industrial materials and activities are protected by a storm resistant shelter to prevent exposure to rain, snow, snow melt, and/or runoff.
