On Monday, Aug. 23, from 11 a.m. to noon, Ohio EPA will hold an early stakeholder outreach meeting to discuss potential changes to the Ohio NPDES Industrial Stormwater General Permit. (You can attend virtually.) Ohio EPA requests input on all current permit conditions, but specifically wants input on the following potential changes:
Updating the benchmark monitoring schedule to be consistent with U.S. EPA’s 2021 Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP);
Including additional implementation measures consistent with U.S. EPA’s 2021 MSGP;
Including indicator monitoring for polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons for facilities that use coal-tar to seal paved surfaces where industrial activities are located; and
Requiring the permit’s annual report to be completed and submitted via Ohio EPA’s eBusiness Center.
Stakeholder input will be accepted though Sept. 17 and can be sent via email. 8/19/2021
