General Petroleum Product Cleanup (B4B)
This general permit authorizes discharges of treated groundwater from petroleum leaks (i.e. fuel oil, diesel fuel, kerosene, aviation fuel, and gasoline) to surface waterbodies. Groundwater contaminated by a gasoline spill, which is pumped from the ground and treated prior to discharge to a stream would be one example. The permit is flexibly designed, addressing several different discharge scenarios.
A renewal of this general permit is currently available in final form, as issued on November14, 2008.
