Renew Your Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) Coverage by Nov. 14, 2016

October 2016 - The TCEQ issued the Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) MSGP TXR050000 for stormwater discharges from industrial facilities on Aug. 14, 2016.

Currently permitted facilities have 90 days to renew their authorization by submitting an NOI (TCEQ Form 10382) either online through STEERS ePermits program or by paper form, and paying the application fee. The 90-day renewal grace period ends at 5:00 p.m. on Nov. 14, 2016.

Before submitting an NOI to obtain permit coverage, be sure to:

  • obtain and review a copy of the 2016 general permit,
  • update or create your Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWP3), and
  • implement the SWP3 on site. 

Facilities with an active No Exposure Certification (NEC) need to also submit the NEC (TCEQ Form 10383) and pay the application fee. This can also be done either online using STEERS or by submitting a paper form.

If you no longer need coverage under the MSGP and have not submitted a Notice of Termination (NOT) (TCEQ Form 10443), your permit authorization will automatically expire on Nov. 14, 2016. Permit authorizations that were not terminated prior to Sept. 1, 2016, will be assessed the $200 annual water quality fee.

When renewing make sure you use the exact legal name as it is registered with the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts and Secretary of State.
