Industrial permits are required if a facility falls under a specific primary
SIC (Standard Industrial Classification) Code. Examples of industrial activity
under these codes include, but are not limited to, landfills, manufacturing, and
transportation. Find your
facility's SIC code on the
OSHA Website. See the
Website to find out if your facility requires a permit.
A Notice of Intent (NOI) form must be filled
out and submitted to the Department to
apply for permit coverage. The permit and forms are available in the links on the
left side menu.
There is no fee to obtain storm water discharge permits.
