Painting and coating

There are a range of environmental regulations that affect facilities with painting and/or coating operations. The following list provides some links to resources for compliance with those regulations.

Air pollution regulations

Waste regulations

Wastewater regulations

  • Small industrial sources using paints and solvents should check with their local wastewater treatment plant or sewerage district about disposal of any industrial materials. They will have limits on what contaminants can be sent to the sewer. You may need to pretreat your wastewater discharge before sending it to the treatment plant. Review the requirements starting on the DNR's wwastewater page.
  • Small industrial sources may also have to comply with a storm water discharge permit, or certify that they are not a source of exposure to storm water contamination. Review the storm water runoff permits for more details.
