The goal of the City of Amarillo Stormwater Quality Program is to protect the water quality within our watershed by regulating industries within the city limits that are required to address a Stormwater Permit by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).

The TCEQ issued the current Industrial General Permit (TXR050000) to regulate stormwater discharges from Industrial Facilities on July 13, 2016: Industrial General Stormwater Permit TXR050000.

The Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) codes or North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes are the primary tools used to determine whether an industry should be regulated under the Industrial General Permit (TXR050000). If your code is listed within the link below, and you have not addressed a Stormwater Permit please contact the City of Amarillo Stormwater Quality Office at (806)342-1528, or a TCEQ Compliance Assistance Specialist at (806)353-9251.

SIC Codes and the Potential to Address a Stormwater Permit

Some Industries that are required to address a Stormwater Permit may qualify for a No Exposure Certification (NEC).

Your facility may qualify for a Conditional No Exposure Exclusion from permit requirements if there is no exposure of industrial materials or activities to precipitation or runoff. Eligibility requirements of the conditional no exposure exclusion can be found in TXR050000 on beginning on page 49.

Please contact the City of Amarillo Stormwater Quality office at: (806) 342-1528 for more information.
