The Bureau of Water Pollution Control (BWPC) protects the waters of the State from the discharge of pollutants. The BWPC regulates all discharges to waters of the State through issuing permits and enforcing the State's water pollution control laws and regulations. In addition, Bureau staff provides technical assistance to dischargers.
