Individual Permit Electronic Applications and Forms

Please be advised that all wastewater permit applications and notices of intent will require electronic submittals via the Georgia EPD Online System (GEOS) by Fall 2018.  More information on GEOS, including training and guidance materials can be found here.

All of the applications for the various types of individual permits are listed below:

Forms for coverage under NPDES or LAS general permits may be found here.

For Renewal Applications

Please be advised that reissuance applications are due in their complete form 180 days before the expiration of the permit. Monitoring of many of the application pollutants may not be required by your current permit; therefore, you may have to schedule additional sampling analyses in order to complete the application.  If you have existing data that fulfills the application requirements that is less than 4.5 years old for domestic applicants or 3 years old for industrial applicants, you may use that data in lieu of conducting additional sampling.  EPD recommends that facilities begin the process early, such that a complete application may be received on time and without enforcement action. Facilities may request a pre-application meeting with EPD prior to application submittal to ensure the application is complete.
