CORRECTION: DEP would like to clarify a response provided during the question and answer period of the April 3 webinar. The correct response to a question regarding the proper method for providing notice to necessary parties as part of the well permit application is as follows: Notice must still be provided to the listed parties via certified mail. In accordance with the statute, the Department will not accept mail slips from commercial vendors such as UPS or FedEx. The Department will return any such submissions to the applicant and consider the permit application administratively incomplete.

Please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions document for more information.
