Chapter 102 ePermit System

The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is planning to release a Chapter 102 electronic permitting system (ePermit System) to improve the efficiency of submission and reviews of Chapter 102 permit applications and Notices of Intent (NOIs) and enable faster responses to applicants.  The web-based Chapter 102 ePermit System will be accessed through DEP’s GreenPort.  The initial release for voluntary use is tentatively planned  for January 25, 2021 and will include new NOIs for coverage under the PAG-02 General NPDES Permit and NOIs for PAG-02 amendments* of coverage.  A draft of the Chapter 102 ePermit User Guide is available for review. Training on the use of the system has been scheduled (see below). DEP is planning a phased release of the Chapter 102 ePermit System to incorporate:

  1. New NOIs and amendments* for the PAG-02 General NPDES Permit;
  2. New applications and amendments* for Individual NPDES Permits for Stormwater Discharges Associated with Construction Activities and PAG-02 General NPDES Permit renewals;
  3. New applications and amendments* for Erosion and Sediment Pollution Control (E&S) Permits for Discharge of Stormwater Associated with Construction Activities and Individual NPDES Permit renewals; and,
  4. New NOIs, amendments*, and renewals for the Erosion and Sediment Control General Permit (ESCGP-3) for earth disturbance associated with Oil and Gas Exploration, Production, Processing or Treatment Operations or Transmission Facilitates and E&S Permit renewals.

*Amendments can be processed within the ePermit System only if the original NOI/application was submitted through ePermit System.
