General Permits

A General Permit authorizes a category of discharge or emission within a geographical area. A general permit is not specifically tailored for an individual facility or project. Each of the bold headings below, under Types of General Permit, indicate that a General Permit is available or under construction for that particular activity. A PDF copy of each type of General Permit is available by clicking the headings.

The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality proposes to reissue the statewide Multimedia Hot Mix Asphalt Facility General Permit (MSR70). This permit covers discharges of storm water and the construction and operation of air emissions equipment from hot mix asphalt facilities that fall under the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC code of 2951). This general permit will replace the previous general permit that expired October 31, 2014. The Multimedia Hot Mix Asphalt Facility General Permit Public Notice can be accessed HERE. The Draft Permit can be viewed HERE. A list summarizing the significant changes from the previous permit can be found HERE.

The Permit Board on Environmental Quality reissued the statewide Multimedia Ready-Mix Concrete Facility General Permit (MSG11) on April 1, 2014. This permit authorizes the discharge of process wastewater and storm water run-off into waters of the State and the construction and operation of air emissions equipment from Ready-Mix concrete facilities in accordance with the provisions of the Mississippi Air and Water Pollution Control Law. This reissuance will allow the continued operation of Ready-Mix Concrete facilities for an additional five-year period. Coverage recipients wishing to be covered under the reissued general permit must submit a Re-coverage Form within 30-days of the date of the Letter of Instruction. The Ready-Mix Concrete General Permit can be accessed HERE. Affected Ready-Mix Concrete facilities seeking initial coverage may do so by submitting the appropriate documents found in the Ready-Mix Concrete General Permit Forms Package
