Summary of Final Georgia Industrial General Permit

On April 16, the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) released its final industrial stormwater general permit for industrial facilities. These permits cover stormwater discharges from certain types of industrial and “industrial-like” operations that are required to have a NPDES permit to discharge stormwater. The previous general permit expired in 2011. The revised permit includes some of the same requirements that were included in the 2006 IGP industrial stormwater permit. However, some significant changes have also been included, especially relating to stormwater monitoring requirements.

The final permit is effective June 1, 2012; all facilities covered under the previous permit must submit a new NOI by June 30, 2012, including certification that the facility is in compliance with the requirements of the new permit.
