On-going Annual Compliance Assistance

W&M has worked with this family of scrap metal facilities for approximately 9 years.  Scrap metal facilities are subject to Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) Industrial Stormwater permit, as well as a handful of other environmental regulations ranging from Emergency Planning Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) Tier II reporting, air permitting, Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC), and non-hazardous waste generation.  Each year, W&M assists their facilities with Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWP3) assistance (inspections, best management practice (BMP)evaluation, analyzing data, annual reporting, etc.) and preparation of their Tier II reports, air permitting assistance and documentation (as needed), and technical assistance on various environmental projects throughout the year.

This permit authorizes BOTH industrial stormwater and wastewater discharges.  This permit covers facilities with SIC codes 3271, 3272, and 3273. For Existing Permit Holders The new permit will be effective November 8, 2016.

If the NOI is not submitted by this date your permit will be terminated. Implement the updated SWP3(s).
