Program for Industrial Activity
To control the mobilization of industrial pollutants (resulting from exposed materials and activities) by stormwater runoff, Florida's NPDES stormwater program regulates "stormwater discharges associated with industrial activity," which includes eleven categories of industrial activity. Operators of industrial facilities that meet the criteria for coverage under the program must obtain a generic or individual NPDES permit and implement a stormwater pollution prevention plan (SWPPP). In certain instances, regulated operators may be eligible for an exclusion from the requirement to obtain a permit.
More information on the NPDES industrial stormwater program can be found on the following linked pages:
