Groundwater Permit Application Forms & Technical Information

The issuance of a Groundwater Discharge Permit does not authorize violation of any federal, state or local laws or regulations, nor does it obviate the necessity of obtaining such permits, including any other DEQ permits, or approvals from other units of government as may be required by law.

Guidesheet II: Guidance For the Development of A Discharge Management Plan has been modified to include additional information. Those facilities and/or consultants developing a management plan for a rapid infiltration system should refer to the additional information on page K-3 in the K Appendix: Example DMP for Rapid Infiltration System.
