General NPDES Permit No.IL-40 - final draft

SMC remains committed to assisting Lake County MS4s with IEPA's NPDES Municipal Stormwater Program. To assist in your review of the draft permit, we have carefully reviewed the new permit and have highlighted the proposed changes, noting, where applicable, how the language has changed from the old permit.

SMC's marked up version

​In SMC's marked up version of the draft permit, the numbers appearing at the start of each note (i.e., 1. New language.) correspond with the numbers presented in IEPA’s Summary of Changes document (i.e., 1. Part I.C was modified by the insertion of items 4 and 5 to include language from NPDES General Permit ILR10.). This information is being provided to assist you in tracking the modifications summarized in IEPA’s Summary of Changes within the draft permit itself.  

Please contact Mike Novotney, mnovotney@lakecountyil.gov should you have any questions about SMC's marked up version of the draft permit or any general questions about IEPA’s NPDES Stormwater Program.
