NPDES: Projects over 1 acre

NPDES Program

The District, in conjunction with PADEP, administers the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) program for stormwater discharges associated with construction activities. Projects that generate earth disturbances 1 acre or greater are required to obtain a NPDES Permit. Sites discharging to a High Quality (HQ) or Exceptional Value (EV) watershed require an Individual NPDES Permit.
