Industrial Stormwater

Due to the circumstances surrounding the state’s response to the COVID-19 situation and for your convenience and safety, EPD is temporarily accepting electronic applications. You can submit electronic applications for general permit coverages here.

The Permit Board on Environmental Quality has reissued the general permit that authorizes the discharge of storm water associated with industrial activity. The Industrial Stormwater General Permit for Industrial Activities (MSR00) was reissued on December 10, 2020. This general permit was previously titled the Baseline Stormwater General Permit. This permit replaces the previous general permit that expired on October 31, 2020, and was administratively extended by MDEQ. Recoverage instructions are being mailed to coverage holders at this time. The recoverage instructions and the required recoverage form can be found here as well. The recoverage form must be received by MDEQ no later than March 29, 2021.
