National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES)

Authorization Status for EPA's Construction and Industrial Stormwater Programs

EPA’s 2017 Construction General Permit (CGP) and 2015 Multi-Sector General Permit (MSGP) apply only in the jurisdictions where EPA remains the permitting authority.
