EPA Seeks Comment on Proposed NPDES Stormwater Permit for Industrial Activities

EPA is soliciting public comment on its NPDES Stormwater Multi-Sector General Permit for Industrial Activities (MSGP) through Feb. 16, 2006. The proposed permit will replace the MSGP-2000 that expired on Oct. 30, 2005. The proposed permit is available for public comment until Feb. 16. The MSGP covers 29 categories of industrial activity in the five states, territories, and other areas where EPA remains the permitting authority. (Most states are authorized to implement the NPDES program and issue their own stormwater permits.)
