The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA) has issued an industrial stormwater discharge permit specifically to cover marinas which would otherwise need to apply for coverage under the Ohio multisector general permit (MSGP). Marinas nationwide are subject to industrial stormwater under Transportation Sector. OEPA General Permit No. OHRM00002 became effective on January 22, 2013. Marinas that wish to be covered under this permit are required to submit an application (“Notice of Intent, or NOI”) to OEPA.

Caltha LLP maintains a library of SWPPP Templates developed to meet the requirements of individual States, including Ohio. Our new Ohio Marina SWPPP template has recently been updated to meet new the new marina general permit requirements.
To reduce the level of effort required for facilities to come into compliance with new permit requirements, Caltha LLP has prepared a SWPPP template based on Ohio Environmental Protection Agency permit requirements, including site specific monthly inspection checklist, quarterly visual assessment checklist, annual stormwater monitoring checklist, and an annual comprehensive site inspection checklist. Caltha has also prepared an Ohio Marina Stormwater Permit Compliance Plan to assist permitted facilities in organizing and planning new compliance requirements under the stormwater general permit.
