NPDES Stormwater Program
The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) stormwater permitting program regulates three types of activities: Industrial activities that fall in one of 10 categories; Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4s); and Construction activities that disturb an acre or more.
State Stormwater Programs
The State Stormwater Permitting Programs regulate site development and post-construction stormwater runoff control. Areas subject to these permit programs include all 20 coastal counties, and various other counties and watersheds throughout the state. Areas subject can be found using the Interactive Stormwater Permitting Map Viewer. What does Phase II have to do with State Stormwater?
