Storm Water Program News (Last updated 7/19/17)

*****  The Industrial General Permit will expire August 31, 2017.  A draft replacement permit is being prepared now.  It should be available for review and comment shortly.  The current schedule will require that the Agency administratively continue the general permit and all authorizations under it beyond Augst 31st for at least a couple of months until the new permit is issued.  Coverage on individual faiclities will not lapse after August 31st.  Facilities with current coverage will receive a letter indicating that the draft permit is in public comment shortly after the comment period begins.  If your facility has had recent storm water personnel or mailing address changes, please update that information with the storm water program.  Once the new permit is issued there will be a renewal mailing with compete instructions to renew.  Please contact the storm water staff with any questions.  (7/19/17)

*****  The comment period for the draft Mineral Mining General Permit  has closed.  Staff are reviewing comments.  The new permit will be issued in the near future. In the meantime, the general permit has been administratively continued and will remain so until the new permit is issued.   Once the new permit is issued, a mailing with complete information on renewing coverage will be sent to all active permittees.  If there have been recent storm water personnel or mailing address changes, please contact the storm water staff with updated information.  To view the draft permit, the online public notice may be found here.  Please contact the storm water staff with any questions.  (7/19/17)

*****  New Notices of Intent (NOIs) for construction, mineral mining, and industrial storm water dischargers have been posted online today.  The new NOIs have newly required language regarding agency access to permitted facilities.  Please review the new language carefully before submitting NOIs to this office.  Older versions of NOIs will no longer be accepted and NOIs that do not meet the newest access requirements will be returned to the applicant.  Please contact storm water staff with any questions.  (3/30/17)

*****  The Storm Water Program has just released a new partial transfer form.  The Notice of Partial Transfer (NPT) is intended to allow portions of a project covered under the Large Construction General Permit (LCGP) to be transferred to a new operator.  The most common situations for this form will be the sale of home or commercial lots to a builder within a common plan of development or sale.  Sale or transfer of some permitted oil field assets to another entity may also qualify to use the NPT.  The NPT creates new LCGP coverage for the receiving entity.  As such, the "new" permittee is subject to relevant WYPDES permit fees and must also submit a SWPPP for newly separated portion of the project.  The NPT and associated instruction sheet is on the Storm Water Program's construction general permit webpage.  The form is available for immediate use.  (12/15/16)
