** Construction Stormwater Announcement **


The PAG-02 General Permit will expire on December 7, 2024. DEP expects that Notices of Intent’s (NOIs) to remain covered under the reissued PAG-02 General Permit will be required, and those NOIs will be due to the DEP or Franklin County Conservation District (FCCD) prior to December 7, 2024.

DEP expects to provide a streamlined renewal NOI form for this purpose. This form will not be available until PAG-02 is reissued (the current estimate is Fall 2024). Permittees that do not have Notice of Termination (NOT) approval by December 7, 2024 will need to submit a renewal NOI. However, DEP and FCCD cannot accept renewal NOIs for PAG-02 until DEP publishes the final reissued PAG-02 General Permit.

Erosion and Sediment (E&S) Pollution Control Program & National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES)

The Erosion and Sediment Pollution Control program emphasizes on the conservation of soil and water resources. The moving of earth presents the opportunity to have erosion and sediment pollution in the event of a rain storm. The state has set up different control standards for these projects to help prevent pollution from occurring. The state requires that best management practices (BMP’s) are to be implemented and maintained for all earth moving activities. An erosion and sediment pollution control plan is required for earth moving activities of 5,000 sq. feet or more, along with implementation and maintenance of the BMP’s. Earth disturbance activity of 1 acre or more requires a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permit for construction activities.
