SB 205 Stormwater Discharge Compliance

Senate Bill 205 (SB 205) requires a person or entity applying for a new or renewed business license to demonstrate enrollment in a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit, if such a permit is required for the type of business/facility. 

In order to comply with SB 205 all businesses must include their U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) code on their City of Del Mar business license application or renewal . 

While certain industrial businesses  will be required to enroll in the NPDES permit program based on their SIC code, non-industrial businesses doing business in or with the City of Del Mar are simply required to report their SIC code on their business license application or renewal.  Businesses can look up their SIC code on the DOL’s SIC code webpage or check in with their insurance company or accountant as SIC codes are typically used on their forms.
