The Mississippi Baseline Industrial Storm Water Permit expires on September 28, 2015. MDEQ is working on developing a new Baseline General Permit. MDEQ will put a draft out to public notice in a few weeks, then work the permit through their administrative approval process. Sometimes this can get delayed beyond the permit expiration date, but don’t worry, MDEQ says that everyone covered by the old permit remains covered until the new permit available. Once the new permit is finalized, they will send a notice and form by mail that can be used to apply for re-coverage under the new permit.
Although states in some other EPA regions have recently added requirements for laboratory analyses into their baseline industrial permits, MDEQ does not expect to add any new monitoring into the new Mississippi permit.
