County Industrial Activities

Our department assists private industrial facilities by providing technical assistance in pollution prevention and assistance in following the proper NPDES Permit path with Maryland’s Department of the Environment. Additionally, we assist the non-regulated public, county and Municipal facilities by providing technical assistance for good housekeeping and stormwater pollution prevention. Our inspectors investigate and respond to water quality complaints that potentially could result in Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination action punishable by Maryland’s Department of the Environment.
