General Multi-Sector Industrial Storm Water Permit:
UPDES Permits

Industrial facilities such as manufacturing facilities, mining operations, landfills, steam electric plants, automotive recyclers, waste and metal recycling, larger wastewater treatment plants, and transportation facilities are typically required to obtain coverage under the Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) for Storm Water Discharges Associated with Industrial Activities. Coverage is usually based on the facility’s Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) code or activities on site. A list of SIC codes that require coverage is provided in the Appendix I table below. Those who require coverage but do not have any materials or activities exposed to storm water may qualify for an exemption by filing a No Exposure Certification.
