Program for Industrial Activity - Multi-Sector Generic Permit (MSGP)


The State of Florida Multi-Sector Generic Permit for Stormwater Discharge Associated with Industrial Activity (MSGP) divides the regulated industrial activities into 30 sectors of related activity and specifies both general and sector-specific requirements for each. The permit, developed by EPA and then adopted and renamed by DEP in October 2000, consists of the original 1995 issuance and the subsequent modifications and corrections.The permit is provided below with indications as to the language applicable to all sectors and to specific sectors, allowing you to download only what you need for your sector. It is important to note that the State of Florida MSGP includes the documents listed below as well as additional requirements set forth in Rule 62-621.300(5), F.A.C.
