Storm Water Industrial General Permit Coverage for Industrial Businesses (SB205)

Starting January 1st, 2020, a person conducting a business operation that is subject to the State Industrial General Storm Water Permit (IGP), 2014-0057-DWQ, shall demonstrate enrollment when applying for an initial business license or business license renewal. Industries subject to the IGP can be found here.

Enrollment under the IGP is demonstrated by providing the State Permit Number (e.g., WDID, WDID Application, NEC, or NONA).  Facilities that are subject to the requirements of the IGP must file a Notice of Intent, obtain a WDID or WDID Application #, prepare a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan, and perform monitoring during the wet season. Those who qualify for an exemption from the IGP still need to file and obtain a Storm Water Permit Number (i.e., NEC or NONA).

For more information, visit the California State Water Resource Control Board.


All commercial and industrial businesses working in the City of Chula Vista must implement pollution prevention measures.  Everyday business operations have the ability to come in contact with storm water, such as material handling and storage or metal grinding.  It is the responsibility of the business owner and employees to ensure that their activities are not negatively impacting the environment.
