Are You Ready For The MSGP Renewal?
Is your wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) permitted for 1.0 MGD or more? Are your treatment units exposed to precipitation? If you answered yes to both questions, then your WWTP will be mandated by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to file for coverage under Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) Permit No. TXR050000, also known as the Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP).
The TCEQ is renewing the MSGP, which will become effective on August 14, 2021. All current (and newly identified) WWTPs have 90 days from when the MSGP becomes effective, or until November 12, 2021, to update or develop a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWP3) and electronically file a Notice of Intent (NOI).
