Paper Products Industrial Sector - Arizona Permit Requirements

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) recently released an revised multisector industrial stormwater discharge general permit, known officially as the AZPDES Multi-Sector General Permit, or MSGP 2010. This permit will replace the existing industrial stormwater permit, which expired in 2005.

Some key changes in the permit are the additional requirements for 30 different sector specific requirements. The requirements described are proposed for the Paper and Allied Products Manufacturing Sector (Sector B). Sector B covers a fairly broad range of facility types, including paperboard mills, pulp mills, paper mills, paperboard containers and boxes, converted paper and paperboard products. These requirements are in addition to permit requirements that apply to all sectors.

Some facilities are required to conduct both visual and chemical (benchmark) monitoring. For benchmark monitoring, the benchmark concentrations or values apply to Paper Board Mills (SIC 2631):

COD 120 mg/L
