Industrial Stormwater Permits

Current 1200-Z Stormwater Discharge General Permit

The Environmental Quality Commission adopted the renewed 1200-Z Industrial Stormwater Discharge General Permit dated March 25, 2021. This permit became effective on July 1, 2021. This permit regulates stormwater discharges from industrial facilities that may reach Oregon waterways, directly or through conveyance system such as ditches or storm drains.

Minor Modification

On Aug. 17, 2022, DEQ modified the 1200-Z to correct minor errors. Find details of the minor modifications in this fact sheet. The expiration date remains unchanged and reference corrections do not alter coverage or permit requirements. 

DEQ initiated a rulemaking in April 2019 to renew the 1200-Z permit. To learn more please visit the 1200-Z Industrial Stormwater Discharge Permit Renewal rulemaking page.
