Electronic Reporting (NeT)

  • FIRST TIME USERS: DANR has partnered with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to develop an electronic reporting system for industrial stormwater sites. If you would like to electronically fill out an NOI, NOT, annual report, change contacts, etc., please read the following information:
    • A Central Data Exchange (CDX) account is required for this submittal.
    • If you have used CDX to submit in NeTDMR or submit applications in other states, you may use that same login information.
    • If you have not registered for CDX previously, you will need to do that prior to filling out information in NeT.
    • In your CDX Account, Add Program Service of “NETMSGP: NeT - Multi-sector General Permit for Stormwater Discharges Associated with Industrial Activities”

Stormwater Permit for Industrial Activities
If you operate a business or industry, you may need a permit for industrial stormwater discharges from your site. The need for an industrial permit is based on the types of activities that you do at your site and your industrial Standard Identification Classification (SIC) code. A list of SIC Codes required to have industrial stormwater permit coverage can be found in Appendix A of the General Permit.

No Exposure Certificate
If your site is required to have General Permit coverage, but all industrial materials and activities are protected to prevent exposure to rain, snow, snowmelt, and/or runoff, you may eligible for a permitting exemption. A No Exposure Certificate is required to be filled out and must be approved by DANR to qualify for this exemption.
Industrial machinery and material handling equipment or activities (such as storage, loading and unloading, and transportation or conveyance) of raw materials, intermediate products, by-products, or waste products must be protected by a storm-resistant shelter.
A storm-resistant shelter is not required for the following industrial materials and activities:

  • Drums, barrels, tanks, and similar containers that are tightly sealed, provided those containers are not deteriorated and do not leak. “Sealed” means banded or otherwise secured and without operational taps or valves;
  • Adequately maintained vehicles used in material handling; and
  • Final products, other than products that would be mobilized in storm water discharges (e.g., rock salt).

Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) - - A SWPPP is required to be developed prior to submitting your NOI. It does not need to be submitted to DANR but must be implemented onsite prior to starting operations. Section 4.0 of the General Permit contains all the SWPPP requirements.
