Electronic Documents Submittal

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.

The federal Clean Water Act provides that the discharge of any pollutants from a point source into surface water of the United States must be regulated under the Wyoming Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (WYPDES) Program.

Through this program, operators of a point source discharge are required to receive coverage under a WYPDES discharge permit. The permits contain limitations and conditions that will assure that the state’s surface water quality standards are protected.
