NJPDES Permit Fees

The fee schedule is assessed in accordance with the current fee regulations found at N.J.A.C. 7:14A-3.1 (pdf) in order to cover the Department's costs to issue and manage the NJPDES program.

The Department first established a fee assessment program in 1981. Individual permit fees are based on the facility's potential environmental impact, the billing rate for the category of discharge, and the minimum fee for the category of discharge. The billing rate for each category of discharge is determined annually by subtracting the total minimum fees paid by the permittees in the category of discharge from the total budget for the category of discharge, and then dividing that value by the sum of the calculated environmental impact for all of the dischargers within the category.

The NJPDES program rules are set forth at N.J.A.C. 7:14A. All persons who wish to discharge wastewater in the state are required to obtain a NJPDES discharge permit from the Department. Pursuant to Section 9 of the State Act, the Department is authorized to "establish and charge reasonable annual administrative fees, which fees shall be based upon, and shall not exceed, the estimated cost of processing, monitoring and administering the NJPDES permits." Fees are assessed to cover the Department's costs to issue and manage NJPDES permits.

N.J.S.A. 58:10A-10 provides the Department with the authority to seek civil administrative penalties for failure to pay assessed NJPDES permit fees.
