Oklahoma General Industrial Permit Expected To Be Finalized By January 2017

The current Oklahoma Industrial Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) OKR05 expired on September 4, 2016. In accordance with Part 8.2 of the OKR05 permit, if the permit is not reissued or replaced prior to the expiration date, it will be administratively continued and remain in force and effect.

A draft Industrial MSGP OKR05 is currently going through the DEQ internal review process. Once the internal review is complete, the draft permit will be sent to EPA for review and approval. DEQ will publish a public notice and make it available for public review and comment after receiving approval from EPA. Once the public notice period is over, DEQ will issue the permit with an effective date. Completing the permitting process will likely occur between November 2016 and January 2017.

All existing permittees under the current Industrial MSGP OKR05 will have 90 days from the effective date of the new permit to update their Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWP3) and submit new NOIs to DEQ along with required permit fees for permit renewal. Industries/facilities with No Exposure Certifications will follow the same timeline.
