Who Needs A Permit?

The term "Storm Water Discharges Associated with Industrial Activity," defined in federal regulations 40 CFR 122.26(b)(14)(i)-(xi), determined which Industrial facilities are potentially subject to Phase I of the storm water program. If you are subject to the program you need to apply for a permit. The definition uses either SIC (Standard Industrial Classification) codes or narrative descriptions to characterize the activities.  

Because the permit is a multi-sector permit, several industrial categories are included in the permit. However, Ohio EPA has designed the permit so that a facility can pull out sections of the permit that are specifically applicable to them.  Appendix D of the Ohio EPA Industrial General Permit should be viewed to determine which sector requirements (Part 8) apply to a facility’s operations.  The information in Appendix D of the permit is organized by sector.
