Chapters 3, 11, 12, 25, 26, and 28 of the Wyoming Water Quality Rules outline the requirements for construction permitting and are available on the Secretary of State website, under the Department Environmental Quality, Water Quality program.
Permit Application Instructions
Step 1: Complete a Water-and-Wastewater-Permit-to-Construct-Application form (Chapter 3 permit). Submit one copy of the design report and construction plans and specifications to the District Engineer for the county (see District Map) in which construction will take place, and one electronic copy to the WDEQ Water Quality Division Document Uploads link above. Both copies must be sealed, signed, and dated by a Wyoming licensed Professional Engineer (PE).

Step 2: DEQ will review the application for compliance with the Water Quality Rules. The DEQ will issue an individual or general permit, or a permit by rule permit depending on the proposed design. 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).
Step 3: Once a permit is issued, the permittee shall complete construction within the timeframe specified in the permit, which will not exceed 5 years from the date of issuance or written notification of coverage. If construction is not completed within this time frame, the permittee shall apply for a new construction permit.
Step 4: Submit a Certificate-of-Completion form when construction is complete.
Submit a Transfer-of-Ownership form if the ownership of a permitted facility is transferred to another party.
