Webinars on the Updated NPDES Application Forms

EPA will host webinars on October 1, 2019 and November 13, 2019, to assist NPDES permit applicants with the completion and submission of their NPDES permit application forms. The webinars are open to all NPDES permit applicants but will focus on EPA’s NPDES permit application forms and not state-specific NPDES application forms. EPA and state permit writers are also welcome to participate.
