Municipal/Industrial Discharge Permits

North Dakota's NDPDES program is responsible for regulating discharges of pollutants from point sources into waters of the state. Any discharge of wastwater from a point source must have a NDPDES permit prior to discharging to be in compliance with state and federal regulations. For a new point source, a completed NDPDES appication must be submitted for review.

Types of Discharge Permits

 Individual Permit:

Review of the application, developing the permit, providing for public comment and finalizing the permit may take up to 180 days. Each permit takes into account site specific information to limit discharges so that the state's water quality standards are met. The Department does not issue individual permit limits prior to completing the permit review process. However, facilities treating domestic wastewater may expect to meet limits similar to those in the general permits for discharges from waste stabilization ponds and domestic waterwater treatment facilities (NDG12-, 22-, 32- and 420000).

General Permit:

If a facility meets the requirements for coverage under a general permit, they may request coverage under that permit, a process which may take 30 to 60 days.

*Domestic wastewater treatment systems must also be reviewed and approved by the Division of Municipal Facilities.
