General Permit Requirements to Discharge Water from Petroleum Bulk Stations and Terminals
If you discharge facility wastewater, contact stormwater, and stormwater associated with industrial activities from a PBST into or adjacent to water in the state, you may qualify for coverage under this general permit. Please review the permit to determine if it applies to your facility. If it does, submit a notice of intent (NOI with instructions) and the application fee to the address provided on the NOI.
After obtaining coverage under this permit, you will need to do the following:
Adhere to the requirements of the general permit (TXG340000).
Complete and submit the Discharge Monitoring Report Form (3320-1), as required.
Submit a Notice of Termination (NOT) if the facility transfers to a new owner or the operator changes.
Submit an NOI if you are the new owner or operator.
Submit an NOT to voluntarily terminate coverage if the discharge is completed, or delayed, or becomes unnecessary.
If you are discharging to an MS4 (HTML), submit a copy of an NOI and an NOT to the TCEQ and provide copies of both to the operator of that system.
The permit is in effect until the NOT is submitted. Fees will accrue annually on September 1.
Even if the general permit described above applies to your situation, you may request coverage under an individual permit (HTML).
