Industrial Stormwater
Overview
Activities that take place at industrial facilities, such as material handling and storage, are often exposed to the weather. As runoff from rain or snowmelt comes into contact with these activities, it can pick up pollutants and transport them to a nearby storm sewer system or directly to a river, lake, or coastal water. To minimize the impact of stormwater discharges from industrial facilities, the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) program includes an industrial stormwater permitting component that covers 10 categories of industrial activity that require authorization under an NPDES industrial stormwater permit for stormwater discharges.


Compliance

City of Flagstaff Environmental Management staff ensure that City facilities requiring an NPDES permit are in compliance with EPA and ADEQ stormwater regulations.  Additionally, City Environmental Management staff are responsible for updating the facility Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) as needed, as well as for training City personnel at relevant facilities on stormwater regulations and compliance.
