Stormwater in Industry

As of November 19, 2001, all industrial facilities (as classified based on the appropriate SIC or NAICS Code) are required to apply for and comply with the TPDES Multi-Sector General Permit. Many facilities may not even be aware that they have a SIC Code and are therefore operating in a state of non-compliance. The information on this page is meant to provide these facilities with the necessary information to determine if they do need to apply for the Multi-Sector General Permit. The following links s provide information to assist in making a determination as to whether or not a permit is necessary for a facility. Should a facility need additional information, they can contact the City of Beaumont Public Works Department at 409-880-3725 for additional information.

The new 2021 Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) for industrial facilities has been issued with an effective date of August 14, 2021. The renewal period for existing permittees ended on November 12, 2021. If you missed the renewal deadline, you must submit a new Notice of Intent (NOI) or No Exposure Certification (NEC), as applicable, using TCEQ’s online e-permitting system STEERS/ePermits and be issued a new authorization number.
