Individual No-Discharge Permits
An individual permit is tailored specifically for each application and allows DEQ to put specific conditions on each permitted facility or activity depending on its unique conditions. Most individual permits take 180 days to issue after the application is deemed administratively complete.
Permitting Procedures for Specific Facility or Activity
Individual permits are developed for a specific facility or activity. DEQ recommends reviewing the Permitting Procedures document and the relevant laws and regulations before getting started. Each Permitting Procedures document is specific to the individual permit application process.
Some individual permits require public notices or public review. Find public notices of a specific individual permit:
DEQ considers issuing a permit to facilities seeking coverage only after payment has been received. Follow the permitting procedures under each individual no-discharge permit type.
