SB 205 BUSINESS LICENSE STORMWATER COMPLIANCE

Senate Bill (SB) 205, signed by Governor Newsom in 2019, requires a person or entity who conducts a business operation that is a “regulated industry” to demonstrate enrollment with the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program. By providing specified information on an initial or renewal City business license application, enrollment in the NPDES permit can be confirmed. The goal of the program is to reduce the spread of pollutants in stormwater associated with industrial activities. SB 205 does not affect all businesses. Only those businesses with primary Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) codes that are identified by the State Water Board as requiring enrollment in the Industrial General Permit (IGP) are affected. The questions below will guide you and the City in determining if your business requires enrollment in the IGP. Completion and submission of this form is required for both new business license applications and renewals.
