The nature of activities on industrial and commercial facilities often involves bulk storage of chemicals, fuels, large volume equipment storage, and regular loading and unloading of materials.  Due to these activities, there is an increased potential for stormwater to be exposed to pollutants.  In addition, industrial and commercial facilities often have a high percentage of impervious surfaces at their site which leads to increased runoff that has a greater chance of picking up pollutants.
