Requirements and Resources for Local Agencies

The Bureau of Surface Water and Pretreatment Permitting is responsible for overseeing the administration of delegated local agency pretreatment programs or issuing SIU permits for discharges into treatment works of non-delegated local agencies.

Annual reports are required to be submitted by local agencies indicating the status of dischargers to local agency sewer plants and of the local agency's pretreatment program. Guidance is available for Delegated Local Agencies and is also included in NJDEP's "Guidance Manual for Pretreatment Program Compliance for Non-Delegated Local Agencies." Part II, Section B.9. Standard Reporting Requirements - Electronic Submission of NJPDES Information, of all Local Agency NJPDES Permits requires submission of Pretreatment Program Annual Reports electronically by December 21, 2020. While there has been an extension to the federal requirement for establishment of a submission service (www.epa.gov/compliance/npdes-ereporting), the Department now requires electronic submission of all reports.

Until such time as the electronic submission service specific to receipt of the annual pretreatment program reports is available, to fulfill the Part II.B.9.a. requirement, the Bureau of Surface Water and Pretreatment Permitting will accept one copy of the Pretreatment Program Annual Report via email to: dwq_pretreatment@dep.nj.gov, to satisfy the electronic submission requirement, with a second hard copy to be mailed to:
