NDEQ Industrial Storm Water General Permit Application Deadlines

The Nebaska Department of Environmental Quality (NDEQ) has propsed a new industrial discharge general permit "National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) General NPDES Permit Number NER900000 for Storm Water Discharges From Industrial Activity to Waters of the State of Nebraska". The draft permit outlines application deadlines for three types of applicants:

Existing Dischargers - in operation and previously permitted under the expired general permit.
Apply no later than October 1, 2011.

New Dischargers or New Sources - commencing after issuance of the new General Permit.
Apply a minimum of 30 days prior to commencing operation of the facility.

New Dischargers or New Sources - in operation prior to issuance of the new General Permit but not covered under the previous General Permit or another NPDES permit.
Apply immediately

To reduce the level of effort required for facilities to come into compliance with new permit requirements, Caltha LLP has prepared a SWPPP template based on Nebraska permit requirements, including Nebraska specific quarterly inspection checklist, quarterly visual assessment checklist, quarterly benchmark monitoring checklist, and an annual comprehensive site inspection checklist. Caltha has also prepared a Nebraska Stormwater Permit Compliance Plan to assist permitted facilities in organizing and planning new compliance requirements under the NDEQ general permit.
