Development Permitting – Update on NPDES Permits - Athens GA

  1. 1. Hello, we are Williams & Associates, an Athens, Georgia based civil engineering firm, with news today on a regulatory update for our clients with active projects in the state of Georgia..
  2. 2. Today I’ll be talking about changes to NPDES Stormwater Discharge Permits in the state of Georgia
  3. 3. OK, let’s get started…
  4. 4. The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (or NPDES) General Permits for Storm Water Discharges Associated with Construction Activities for Stand Alone, Infrastructure and Common Development projects expired on July 31, 2013.
  5. 5. On July 26, 2013, the Georgia Environmental Protection Division ("EPD") provided a "No Action Assurance" for storm water discharges to waters of the State associated with new construction activities that did obtain coverage under General Permit Nos. GAR1 00001, GAR1 00002 or GAR1
  6. 6. New general permits to replace the 2008 General Permits were public noticed on or around Tuesday, July 30, 2013.
  7. 7. EPD will consider all relevant comments received during the thirty day public comment period, and will issue new general permits as expeditiously as possible after the close of the comment period.
  8. 8. Permittees of current projects with expired NPDES General Permits will have 90 days from the day the new permits are issued to re-file.
  9. 9. The proposed changes to the NPDES General Permits for Storm Water Discharges Associated with Construction Activities for Stand Alone, Infrastructure and Common Development only minimally affect design and development.
  10. 10. If you have questions, contact the GA EPD and the GSWCC (the Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission).
  11. 11. OR simply contact us here at Williams & Associates if you need clarification about these or other construction and development permitting issues.
  12. 12. We always stay on top of the latest regulations to insure compliance and minimize surprises for our clients.
  13. 13. And in any case, good luck in your next project, and if you’re ever in Athens, stop by and see us.
  14. 14. Until next time, all the best from
