Consolidated Potable Water Treatment Plant (BPW)

The 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 this general permit.  The specific limitations and monitoring conditions for each facility authorized through this consolidated master general permit are summarized in the “permit summary tables.” Individual authorizations will be issued for each of the twenty-eight WTPs.
