NPDES Application Forms

Beginning on June 12, 2019, if you are located in a jurisdiction in which an EPA regional office administers the NPDES permit program, use the application forms listed below.

EPA developed the NPDES permit application forms in fillable Portable Document Format (PDF) to facilitate easier and more efficient completion of forms. The fillable PDF forms allow applicants to enter responses directly within the form.

Before completing the forms, review the TIPS for Completing Fillable PDF NPDES Permit Application Forms below.

You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page. See EPA’s About PDF page to learn more.
