Permittees under the Georgia Industrial Storm Water General Permit must Document If there are any floor drains in the production area and/or sinks that are not in the bathroom, kitchen, breakroom, etc. If any of these are present at the facility, an evaluation is required.
The evaluation includes:
• Locating potential connections to your storm water system.
• Verification that floor drains and connections go to municipal sewer.
The above needs to be verified from as-built drawings and/or by conducting a smoke and dye test at least once during the term of the permit. The smoke and dye test must be conducted to evaluate for the presence of non-storm water discharges into the storm sewer system from all floor drains, and from all sinks in industrial areas excluding eyewash stations that were installed prior to 1/1/2006.
