General Permit Requirements:
BMPs (Best Management Practices) must be utilized to prevent hazardous materials and other materials used at an industrial facility from leaving the site with storm water runoff. It is up to the owner to determine and install the appropriate BMPs for their facility.
The Division of Waste Management publishes guidance documents to assist industrial facilities in developing BMPs or procedures that ensure that hazardous wastes are handled accordingly. These guides also help minimize the potential for storm water pollution. Publications can be found on the Division of Waste Management Publications webpage.
Storm water sampling is required for the facilities (industrial activities) identified below. The specific monitoring conditions and parameter list for each facility group is outlined in Appendix 1 of the permit. DMR forms for a specific group may be obtained by clicking on the associated activity.
