The Water and Wastewater Program issues permits to construct, modify, or upgrade water or wastewater treatment facilities, water distribution systems, sewage collection systems; permits to install small wastewater treatment facilities; and permits to treat or dispose the wastewater generated from coal bed methane, oil or gas production.
The steps involved in applying for a Permit to Construct and links to forms and guidance documents are available on the Obtaining a Permit tab above.
Construction, upgrading, or modification of any part of a public water supply system or wastewater system requires a permit. There are three types of construction permits: general permits, permit by rule, and individual permits. If the project is not covered by a general permit or a permit by rule, an individual permit to construct is required. Please contact the District Engineer for the county in which construction will take place if you need more information about which permit is required (see District Map in tab above).
