In March 2015, 25 final Individual CSO permits that cover 217 CSO outfalls in 21 municipalities were issued. These permits will become effective on July 1, 2015.
The Department's Division of Water Quality has established multidisciplinary internal teams to provide ongoing technical assistance and guidance to permittees. A list of the team leaders and their contact information can be found at the bottom of this page.
In Spring of 2015 these teams met with permittees to discuss the permit requirements with a specific emphasis on submittals due the first year. A detailed discussion of how to submit Discharge Monitoring Reports was part of these meetings.
As a result of these meetings the Department created several resource documents for permittees:
- Questions from External Team Meetings – a supplemental FAQ document that addresses the technical questions raised at the on-site External Team Meetings that occurred in May and June of 2015.
