The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency encourages businesses with manufacturing, recycling, transportation or dozens of other industrial activities to find out whether they need an industrial stormwater permit.
The M-P-C-A is trying to reach thousands of businesses and organizations that may not be aware they are required to have a permit. The application deadline is October 5th. Online applications are available now.
The permit is required for many types of businesses in which stormwater comes into contact with products or wastes.
