Consolidated Potable Water Treatment Plant (BPW)
This new DSW consolidated master general permit authorizes the existing discharges from twenty-eight potable water treatment plants (WTPs), into the surface waters of the State of New Jersey. The wastewater characteristics, effluent limitations and monitoring conditions of the discharges are similar and as such are more appropriately controlled under a general permit. The specific limitations and monitoring conditions for each facility will be authorized through this consolidated master general permit and are summarized in the “permit summary tables.” Individual authorizations will be issued for each of the twenty-eight WTPs, following the finalization of this general permit.
Although this General Permit is specifically designed for these existing twenty-eight WTPs, the Department reserves the right to include any new water treatment facilities, with similar wastewater characteristics, that have received all applicable Federal, State and local approvals, including the appropriate Departmental approvals and any necessary wastewater management plan (WMP) approvals.
