NPDES Permitting and Renewals
The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) is a Federal program administered by the States that requires wastewater dischargers to have a permit in order to protect public health and aquatic life. NPDES permits are required for municipal wastewater treatment plants, industrial point sources (including Marcellus Shale drilling operations), and concentrated animal feeding operations. Typically, NPDES permits are valid for a period of five years and renewals must be submitted at least 180 days prior to expiration of the current permit.
National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permits
NPDES permits typically set site-specific effluent limits, treatment or management procedures, compliance monitoring, and reporting requirements. If your facility is required to submit, renew or report on an NPDES permit, GeoServices, Ltd. will work together with the DEP Regional Office to ensure that your facility remains in compliance.
