Permit Application
Deficiencies

Below are some common permit application deficiencies:

Administrative Deficiencies

  • The applicant listed on the TWA-1 Form is incorrect. The applicant should be the entity that will eventually own and operate the proposed treatment works.
  • Signatures on the TWA-1, WQM-003, and WQM-006 series forms are older than 1 year and/or are not original.
  • The application fee is not included with the application or is calculated incorrectly.
  • Notifications to the Local Planning Board and Environmental Commission are not included (certified mail - return receipt requested).
  • Engineering documents are not signed, sealed, and designated as final.

Technical Deficiencies

  • Gravity sewer lines are designed below minimum slope requirements or are oversized to circumvent the need for a pump station and force main.
  • The Engineer's Report (Form WQM-006) and the final construction plans are inconsistent.
  • The site plan is incomplete (for example, plans do not show existing sanitary sewer lines, water mains, storm sewers, stream crossings, etc.).
  • The design flow calculation is inconsistent with Department requirements and/or greater than the amount of flow approved by the owner of the receiving wastewater treatment facility.
  • The engineering design deviates from the Department's requirements and adequate justification is not provided.
