Industrial Stormwater Digital Document Library Digital Document Library

**NEW!** The Industrial Stormwater Digital Document Library provides guidance to help industrial stormwater facility staff meet the requirements of the industrial stormwater permit and assist with overall stormwater management. In addition to general guidance documents, the Digital Document Library has example documents that stormwater staff are using to manage their stormwater discharges. Common examples of documents in the library include:

  • inspection and checklists and forms,
  • site plan review checklists,
  • guidance documents & resources
  • standard operating procedures.

All documents in the Digital Document Library are available for all site users to download and use. MPCA staff will review all materials to ensure their compliance with the industrial stormwater prior to posting in the Digital Document Library.
