BBA Webinar: Coming Changes to the Multisector General Permit for Industrial Stormwater

Monday, May 18, 2020 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM
On-Line


Description:

The BBA presents live webinars via Zoom. Access to this program is free, included as part of your member benefit. Please register for this program through your BBA account to receive the Zoom webinar link. In order to receive the Zoom webinar link, you must register at least two hours before the start time of the program.

Should you be worried about General Permit coverage for Industrial Stormwater?  Please join our panel of experts for an overview of the changes proposed to the NPDES Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) for industrial stormwater discharges.  The webinar will give participants an overview of the MSGP including the scope of facilities subject to the MSGP, a summary of the proposed changes in the draft 2020 MSGP including sampling requirements and benchmark modifications, and the general permit's implementation by EPA Region 1 in Massachusetts.  The panel will also address implications for new operators seeking permit coverage during the gap in permit availability beginning on June 3rd.  As the public comment period on the draft permit has been extended until June 1st, the discussion may also inform potential comments.  The panelists will also provide information on proactive steps that could be undertaken now to reduce long-term compliance costs and minimize the risk of non-compliance with the final permit expected to be effective in 2021.
