Multi Sector General Permit (TXR050000) Renewal Period Begins

August 2021 - TCEQ issued the new 2021 Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) effective August 14, 2021. The 2016 permit expired that same day. The MSGP regulates stormwater discharges from industrial activities.

To view the renewed 2021 MSGP and resources for renewing your permit coverage, see our Stormwater MSGP for Industrial Facilities webpage.

Facilities with a Notice of Intent (NOI) or No Exposure Certification (NEC) authorization under the 2016 MSGP have 90 days to renew it.

  • Submit a renewal application between August 14, 2021 to November 12, 2021 in STEERS. There is a $100 application fee.
  • Facilities with NOIs must develop and implement an updated Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWP3) before renewing coverage.
