Stormwater Construction General Permit (TXR150000) Renewed

Mar. 2018 - The TCEQ commissioners renewed the general permit to authorize stormwater discharges from construction sites and it became effective Mar. 5, 2018.

Current holders of expired permit authorizations have 90 days from the effective date to submit a renewal Notice of Intent (NOI) or Low Rainfall Erosivity Waiver (LREW). Submit renewals online or with a paper form. The 90-day grace period ends June 3, 2018.

Changes to the general permit include:

  • added and revised several definitions to clarify permitting requirements;
  • added clarification regarding redacted signatures for small construction site notices and secondary operator site notices for large construction sites;
  • revised the total suspended solids benchmark monitoring level for concrete batch-mixing plants;
  • clarified the requirements of primary operators of large construction activities related to Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWP3) development and implementation; and
  • added the requirement that effective Sept. 1, 2018, all NOIs, Notices of Change (NOCs), Notices of Termination (NOTs), and LREWs will be required to be submitted to the TCEQ electronically via the STEERS/ePermits system.

Apply online through STEERS.  Before renewing make sure you are using the exact legal name and tax identification number as registered with the Texas Secretary of State and Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts.
