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.

Completing the Application: TYPE OR PRINT IN BLOCK LETTERS IN THE APPROPRIATE SPACES

Section A.  Permit Information - Check the appropriate box and enter the Permit Number and date of issuance of the existing Individual or General NPDES Permit assigned to the construction activity at the site identified in Section C below.

Section C.  Site Information - Enter the DEP Site ID#, site name, site address/location, county and municipality of the site where the construction activity authorized by the NPDES Permit is located. Include the date on which the transfer of Permit responsibility, coverage and liability will occur. The Regional Office can supply the Site ID #.

Section D.  Transferee/Co-Permittee Information - Enter the full name, address, email address, and telephone number of the individual or organization that is applying to assume operational control of construction activities at the site. The Regional Office can supply the Client ID #, if known.


Section E.  Compliance Review - The individual or organization referenced in Section D must indicate if any other environmental permits have been received or are pending from DEP as well as their past compliance history and if they are currently in compliance with environmental laws, rules and regulations, permits, orders and schedules of compliance.

Section F.  Certification and Signature of Applicant - The new Transferee/Co-Permittee Applicant (named in Section D) must complete the required certification to include the printed applicant name and title. The application shall be signed as follows:

b.  For a partnership or sole proprietorship -- By a general partner or the proprietor, respectively; or

For purposes of this section, a principal executive officer of a Federal agency includes: (1) the chief executive officer of the agency, or (2) a senior executive officer having responsibility for the overall operations of a principal geographic unit of the agency (e.g., Regional Administrators of EPA).

d.  For individuals, no indication of title is necessary.
