  Electronic Submissions: 



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 EPA Website to find out if your facility requires a permit.

Permit Application:

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.

*Note: The forms available in the side menu can be filled out electronically - the forms also require a .pdf reader such as Acrobat Reader. To download a free copy click the icon to the right or go to Get Adobe Acrobat Here

Site Inspection Template - This template is used for recording site inspection observations and kept by the permittee  - not necessary to submit this form unless requested by the Department.
No Exposure Certification -  This form is filled out instead of applying for a permit if all Industrial Activities are "sheltered" from contacting stormwater.
Notice of Termination (NOT) - This form must be submitted to the Department if a facility has ceased its industrial operations and certifies that all industrial activities are no longer exposed to stormwater.
