General Industrial Permits

North Carolina has 21 General Industrial Permits.  Industries that are eligible for one of the General Industrial Permits are issued a Certificate of Coverage (COC). Each facility's COC contains the same requirements as for all other facilities covered under the same General Permit. General permits are renewed on a five-year cycle.

The following General Industrial Permits were renewed on July 1, 2021:  NCG02 (Mining), NCG03 (Metal Fabrication), NCG06 (Food & Kindred), NCG08 (Transit & Transportation), NCG09 (Paints & Varnishes), NCG10 (Used Motor Vehicles), and NCG12 (Landfills).  

Things to Do if Your General Permit was Renewed in July 2021

  • Read the new permit and retain it at your facility.
  • Obtain a new COC via the COC Request Form if you are current on your permit fees.
  • Pay your permit fee if needed, Stormwater ePayment is preferred.
  • Conduct required analytical and qualitative monitoring quarterly during the first measurable storm event of the quarter.  The first quarter began on July 1, 2021.
  • Read the Six Step Process and comply with the deadlines for entering into eDMR.
  • If you had Representative Outfall Status in the previous permit term, attach the completed ROS Renewal Certification Form and prior documentation that was provided when the Division originally granted ROS to the Stormwater Upload Form
