Instructions
DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
BUREAU OF WATERWAYS ENGINEERING AND WETLANDS
INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE
TRANSFEREE/CO-PERMITTEE APPLICATION FORM FOR A GENERAL OR
INDIVIDUAL NPDES PERMIT FOR STORMWATER DISCHARGES
ASSOCIATED WITH CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITIES
Who may file the Transferee/Co-Permittee Application Form:
This form may be used by an applicant seeking to apply for
either complete or partial operational control of earth disturbance activities at a site which are already authorized by either an
Individual or General NPDES Permit. Federal NPDES Regulations at 40 C.F.R.
§
122.21(b) require that Operator(s) must become
a permittee. An operator is a person who meets either of the following criteria: 1.) You have operational control of construction
project plans and specifications, including the ability to make modifications to those plans and specifications;
OR
2.) You have
day-to-day operational control (supervision) of those activities at the project that are necessary to ensure compliance with the
Erosion and Sediment Control Plan for the site or ensure compliance with other permit conditions, i.e., General Contractors.
Subcontractors generally do not have supervisory control over earth disturbance activities and therefore usually
should not
become a permittee or co-permittee. If prior to construction activities, there is no operator, the owner must apply for the permit.
Once the operator has been selected, the operator must use this application either to be made a co-permittee or to have the
permit transferred to the contractor.
Failure of the operator to be added to the permit is a violation of federal and state law
and regulation.
Where to file the Transferee/Co-Permittee Application Form:
Send this form to the reviewing entity, either to the local county
conservation district that is participating as the reviewing entity or, if the Department is the reviewing entity, to the appropriate
DEP Regional Office, Permitting and Technical Services Section.
When to file the Application:
This application must be filed at least 30 days prior to the proposed change of ownership and/or
operational control which will result in the transfer of permit responsibility, coverage and liability.
