The MPCA issues the Construction Stormwater General Permit to protect water resources from contaminants in runoff from construction sites. The general permit requires controls for construction stormwater runoff. In most cases, construction site owners and operators may apply for coverage under the general permit, meaning they agree to comply with the conditions set in the general permit.
Not all developments require NPDES permit, but they all must meet section 19-145 of City Code. Current and proposed developments within the city can be found on our planning page.
