Pesticide Application Discharge (PGP)

This general permit authorizes the applications of biological and chemical pesticides in water when such applications are made in, over, or near surface waters of the State. A request for authorization under this permit is required for certain entities and for applications over certain annual treatment thresholds as defined in Table 1.

This NJPDES general permit is issued to ensure compliance with the Clean Water Act and does not supersede and/or replace any permits issued by NJDEP’s Pesticide Control Program. This NJPDES permit also does not negate the requirements under any other federal, state, and local laws and regulations including, but not limited to FIFRA, Pinelands Commission Certificate of Filing, Aquatic Pesticide Permit, Mosquito/Fly Control Permit, and Reporting to the National Response Center.
