About Stormwater Permit Guide


This website was founded by a licensed attorney with over a decade of experience.

The purpose of the stormwater permit is to limit pollution that comes from stormwater runoff. Generally, stormwater runoff is defined as rain water that has ultimately become polluted after coming into contact with a man-made structure/surface.

The objective of this site is to improve the environment by informing and educating the public about stormwater permits and stormwater runoff.
The three most common stormwater permits are 1) Industrial General Permit; 2) Construction General Permit; and 3) MS4 Permit.

Typically, a facility (discharger) must obtain coverage under a general permit to be allowed to discharge pollutants (stormwater runoff) into the ground or waterbody to a limited extent. Discharges must comply with effluent limitation guidelines. In some instances, an Individual Permit may be required if the facility is substantially unique and the permit requires tailoring.

Each facility site is responsible for stormwater permit coverage compliance.

Requirements for stormwater permits may vary depending on the state or jurisdiction.
