Industrial Stormwater Permit Information

2017-2018 seasonal information: Be sure to clean up any excess salt and sand you spread at your facility during the winter. Salt is effective only when the temperature is above 15 degrees; use sand for traction during cold weather events. Check out MPCA’s “Winter parking lot and sidewalk maintenance manual” for more info.
