The Kansas General Permit for Stormwater Runoff Associated with Industrial Activities became effective on November 1, 2016. The reissued permit and forms contain new and additional requirements.
Owners or operators of new or existing unpermitted facilities subject to regulation of stormwater runoff must complete the new Notice of Intent (NOI) form to apply for and obtain coverage under the industrial stormwater general permit S-ISWA-1611-1.
Facilities that currently have industrial stormwater discharge coverage under the previous Kansas General Permit do not need to submit a new NOI, but need to comply with the requirements of the new general permit. Existing permitted facilities that wish to decline coverage under the new permit must submit an application for coverage under an individual permit by February 1, 2017 and must continue to comply with the conditions of the previous general permit until the individual permit is issued.
The principal requirement of the Kansas General Permit for Stormwater Runoff from Industrial Activity has remained the same – for the owner to develop, implement and maintain a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP). Caltha LLP has prepared a SWPPP Template to align with the 2016 Kansas permit requirements.
