(1) PERMIT REQUIREMENTS. Requirements of an
individual WPDES permit issued under s.
Stats., shall be consistent with similar requirements in general storm water
discharge permits, except where the department determines that more stringent
requirements are necessary to meet a performance standard of ch. NR 151 or a
water quality standard. The department may require that specific source area
controls be used as a requirement of an individual permit.
(2) EFFLUENT LIMITATIONS. A facility covered
by an individual WPDES storm water permit under s.
(d), Stats., may be subject to an effluent
limitation for a point source discharge, as defined in s.
Stats., for storm water discharge.
INDIVIDUAL PERMIT COVERAGE. If it
determines that one or more of the following conditions are met, the department
may require that a storm water discharge be covered by an individual WPDES
permit under s.
(a) The storm water discharge is a
significant source of pollution and more appropriately regulated by an
individual WPDES storm water permit.
(b) The storm water discharger is not in
compliance with the terms and conditions of this chapter, or a general storm
water discharge permit issued under this subchapter.
(c) Effluent limitations or standards are
promulgated for a storm water discharge.
(4) PETITION. Any person may submit a written
request to the department that it take action under this section.
(5) REVOCATION OF GENERAL PERMIT COVERAGE. If
the department determines that an industrial facility should be covered by an
individual WPDES permit, the department shall explain its decision in writing
to the permittee prior to revoking general permit coverage and issuing an
individual WPDES permit.
