ELECTRONIC DOCUMENT UPLOAD
In response to the Governor's request to limit contact and the move toward staff working remotely for the near future, the WDEQ Water Quality Division (WQD) has made electronic document submittal available. This includes permit applications, response to comments, reports, and other communications. Forms have been set up for individual WQD Sections (Watershed, WYPDES, Groundwater, Water/Wastewater), and a form is also available for general WQD submittals. Please choose the appropriate form from the list of links below to upload your documents. If submitted electronically, no hardcopy is required to be submitted unless you are contacted by a WQD Section Manager with a request to submit the hard copy. Please note that the Water Quality Division is unable to accept comments on documents in public notice via these forms. Please refer to the public notice for instructions on how to submit comments.

Septic system permits are required for the installation, repair or replacement of individual or commercial sewage disposal systems that treat less than 2,000 gallons of domestic sewage per day. If your facility treats more than 2,000 gallons of sewage per day, contact the Underground Injection Control (UIC) Program.
This permit is to be used only for the construction of small wastewater facilities located in Campbell (commercial systems only), Carbon, Crook, Niobrara, Platte, and Weston Counties where DEQ is the permitting authority. If your septic system will be located in any other county, the permitting authority for that county may require different forms or additional information.
