Non-Storm Water Discharge Licenses
To prevent pollution, we track non-storm water (wastewater) going into Madison storm sewers, lakes, and streams. We do this work under Ordinance 7.47. of the Madison General Ordinances.
You need a permit to discharge any non-storm wastewater.
- Noncontact cooling water
- Process wastewater
- Swimming pool backflush and draining
- Any combination of these
You should fill out a permit application if you:
- Are a new discharger and don’t have a permit
- Have a permit, but need to make changes to your application
