If you are currently covered under Ohio EPA’s Industrial Storm Water General Permit, it’s important to know that your permit expired on Dec. 31, 2016. Ohio EPA’s Division of Surface Water is finalizing a new general permit. Please know that your operations will remain covered until you’ve had a chance to renew coverage.
The Division of Surface Water plans to send all industrial storm water general permit holders a renewal notice in early spring. This notice will grant you 90 days to renew your permit, including the ability to renew electronically through Ohio EPA’s eBusiness Center. If you have questions regarding the renewal process, please contact Ohio EPA’s storm water section or call Ohio EPA’s compliance assistance hotline at 800-329-7518.
