TCEQ Reviews Changes for Storm Water Permits

The TCEQ is in the process of renewing the TPDES Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) for industrial facilities, TXR050000,which expires August 14, 2016. The final draft of the Storm Water MSGP will be available for viewing on June 13, 2016.  W&M will prepare further communications regarding the final changes after June 13th.

For Existing MSGP Permit Holders

  • The new permit will be effective August 14, 2016.
  • Within 90 Days from the effective date existing permit holders will need to:
    • Update existing Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWP3) to meet new MSGP requirements. (Note: this is an excellent time to review the SWP3 to make sure it reflects current site conditions and operations).
    • Submit a Notice of Intent (NOI) to the TCEQ to renew permits by November 13, 2016. If the NOI is not submitted by this date your permit will be terminated.
    • Implement the updated SWP3(s).

For No Exposure Certification (NEC) Permittees

  • Within 90 Days from the effective date:
    • Review site operations relative to the conditions of the NEC in the new MSGP to make sure your facility still qualifies. If so, submit a new NEC form by November 13, 2016.
    • If your facility no longer qualifies, you must prepare and implement a SWP3 in accordance with the new MSGP and submit an NOI by November 13, 2016.

For facilities that are unsure if their operations require an MSGP, please contact Heather Woodward or Jennifer Adams for more information.
