Frequently Asked Questions

Do You Need Permit Coverage?

Answer the following two questions:
For 45 days or more in a 12-month period, does your operation confine and feed animals in an area that does not contain sustained crops, vegetation, forage grown or post-harvest residues during the normal growing season?

Do you discharge or propose to discharge to waters of the state either directly or through any man made conveyance?

If you answered yes to both of these questions, your facility may require a permit.
