Stormwater Program


The Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) codes listed below are potentially regulated by the Industrial General Permit  based on Attachment A. When evaluating whether a facility is required to obtain coverage under the Industrial General Permit on the basis of its SIC code, please consider any applicable footnote at the bottom of this webpage. In some instances, those footnotes describe situations in which a facility with a commonly-regulated SIC code is not required to obtain Industrial General Permit coverage. The below list is not a complete list of every type of facility required to obtain Industrial General Permit coverage. Refer to Attachment A of the Industrial General Permit for complete descriptions of the types of facilities requiring coverage.

Refer to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) website for full descriptions of each SIC code.
