Small MS4s operators located outside of the urbanized areas may be required to obtain a MS4 General Permit if there exists or there is the potential for significant water quality impairment. The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permitting authority (EPA) could make this determination by itself or after receiving a petition from concerned citizens or groups.
