Draft Multi-Sector General Permit Public Workshop

The Office of Water Resources, Rhode Island Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (RIPDES) Program’s files indicate that you may be interested in receiving information regarding the RIPDES Industrial Stormwater Program. 

As a delegated State by EPA, RIDEM last issued a statewide Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) on May 3, 2019 (“2019 MSGP”), to cover stormwater discharges associated with industrial activity, excluding discharg­es from construction sites.  This General Permit expires on May 2, 2024. At this time, the Department is proposing to reissue the MSGP in 2024, which will replace the 2019 MSGP. 

The informational workshop will highlight the proposed significant revisions to the RIPDES MSGP, which the RIDEM plans to reissue in the late spring/early summer of 2024. There will be time for questions and answers. The session will be recorded and will be made available for those who are unable to attend.

If you have any questions regarding these workshops or the permit re-issuance process, please reach out to the RIPDES Municipal and Industrial Stormwater Program staff at DEM.RIPDESMSGP@dem.ri.gov
