NOTICE: The 2020 Chester County Envirothon on May 6-7 and the State Envirothon on May 19-20 have been CANCELLED.

Chapter 102 Permitting Update

Effective December 8, 2019, new forms are required to be submitted for applications for coverage under PAG-02 and Individual NPDES Permit Applications. Please visit PA DEP’s E&S Resources website, located here, for links to the new documents (including applications, forms, instructions, and modules). It is recommended to schedule a pre-application meeting for all proposed projects needing NPDES permits. Please contact Gordon Roscovich, Urban Team Leader, if you have any questions.

On December 6, 2019, CCCD notified permittees, operators, and plan designers of projects with active coverage under PAG-02 General Permit authorizing stormwater discharges associated with construction activities of effective changes to their permit. DEP is asking that permittees submit an acknowledgement form directly to them for each PAG-02 permitted project site.
