TxDOT MS4 Discharge Notification

Many NPDES and TPDES discharge permits include conditions requiring the submittal of various notices to the operators of any Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4s) expected to receive discharge from the activity. If you are required to notify TxDOT of discharges in accordance with your NPDES or TPDES permit, use the submission form below to complete this action. When completing the form, you will need to be sure to include information that is consistent with your permit/application, as well as attach any necessary documents.

Please note that, per Part II.C of TxDOT’s MS4 permit, TxDOT retains the authority to disallow discharges (including TPDES-permitted discharges) into the TxDOT right-of-way under certain conditions.
