WATER POLLUTION CONTROL PERMIT
WASTEWATER DISCHARGES FROM HIGHWAY
OR MUNICIPAL MAINTENANCE FACILITIES
WV/NPDES PERMIT NO. WV0116246
The Division of Water and Waste Management is proposing to reissue the General WV/NPDES Water Pollution Control Permit to regulate the discharge of wastewater from state highway or municipal maintenance facilities. The General Permit will authorize the operation and maintenance of establishments engaged in highway maintenance and repair which have vehicle maintenance, material handling and storage, and/or vehicle fueling and lubrication, vehicle washing facilities, and/or domestic sewage disposal systems, or parts thereof, and the direct or indirect discharge of treated wastewater to the waters of the State. It is proposed that this General Permit be issued for a five (5) year term.
The General Permit is intended to cover discharges to waters of the state from state highway or municipal maintenance facilities engaged in the maintenance activities of highways or streets and the associated actions relative to the implementation of those activities. The discharges will be primarily storm water. Other facilities with similar type storm water discharges may potentially be covered on a case by case basis. However, certain facilities engage in vehicle washing and/or have sewage treatment facilities on site that also require permitting. Nearly all of the facilities to be permitted under this General Permit are already in existence. This General Permit is intended to allow for one (1) registration to cover multiple discharges at a facility.
The Director of the Division of Water and Waste Management retains authority to require any owner/operator to apply for and obtain an individual WV/NPDES Permit. This authority will be exercised when the Director determines that such individual permit will better protect the receiving water.
The Draft Permit and Fact Sheet may be inspected by appointment between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday at the Department of Environmental Protection, Division of Water and Waste Management, Public Information Office, 57th Street SE, Charleston, WV 25304. Copies of the documents may be obtained from the Division at a nominal cost.
Any interested persons may submit written comments on the Draft Permit. Comments will be accepted until December 13, 2021. They should be addressed to:
Director, Division of Water and Waste Management
