National Pollution Discharge Elimination System Permit (NPDES)
  The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) was established by the EPA to control the discharge of pollution point-sources, such as storm water and industrial discharges, that could potentially affect the quality of waters of the United States. Storm water permits can be required for different types of activities, depending upon what Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) Code is associated with the activity.
