Water Pollution Control (WPC) E-Permitting System - In an effort to improve our service to the public, NDEP has developed an electronic process for submitting permit applications. By selecting WPC e-Permitting System, the applicant will be directed to the registration/sign-in page. Please register (sign-in) and complete the application on-line, print and sign the certification letter, then mail it to NDEP with the appropriate application fee(s).
Permit Terms — Permits are effective for five years and require submittal of quarterly reports to NDEP. The reporting requirements and permit limitations will be listed in the discharge permit. Typical permit requirements include flow monitoring of the effluent via an acceptable measuring device (flume, weir, magnetic meter, etc.) and sampling of the effluent. Additional constituent monitoring may be required at the Division's discretion.
