WW & WS Permit Information

Following recent reductions in staff at the State Department of Environmental Conservation and in an effort to minimize delays in the processing of applications, the Application and Technical checklists for designers have been updated.  The use of the checklists will be implemented by all Regional Offices (including delegated towns) beginning January 11, 2016. The checklists are attached to the December 22, 2015 Newsletter from DEC (see link below).  Please refer to the checklists prior to submitting applications for review.  For a comprehensive overview of the State's Environmental Protection Rules concerning wastewater and water supply, please click on the link below.
