General Permits

General permits are used by the Division of Water Quality to streamline processing time for specific classes of wastewater discharges. In issuing general permits, processing time is greatly reduced because a standard set of conditions specific to a discharge type are developed and issued at one time (rather than issuing individually tailored permits for each discharger). After a general permit has undergone the required draft, public comment, and final issuance stages, it becomes available to dischargers that meet the established discharge requirements. General permits are currently available for the following types of discharges:

Surface Water Discharges Stormwater Discharges
Combined Sewer Overflows Ground Water Discharges
