2020 National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) Update and Summary of Changes

Christine Mayo

This course will discuss the updates to the EPA 2020 NPDES MSGP for stormwater discharges from industrial activity, and specifically how the changes may impact stormwater planning and prevention for various sectors of industry. If the proposed 2020 MSGP is approved, it would replace the EPA’s 2015 MSGP. States that have the authority to run their own programs would consider the finalized 2020 MSGP as a model for their state-specific permit requirements. Proposed changes that will be discussed primarily relate to site eligibility and benchmark monitoring requirements.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Learn the changes between the 2015 MSGP and the 2020 MSGP.
  • Understand eligibility requirements for various industries.
  • Determine if facilities require updates to their stormwater planning, management and permits.
