Permit Issues Work Group

The Permits Implementation Work Group formed out of the Regulation No. 61 workgroup to understand how regulations, policies, guidance, and standards were applied in permits, and to evaluate whether any change was needed. The Water Quality Control Division participates in meeting of the workgroup during even months of the year (months when no Water Quality Forum meeting is scheduled). The group has a list of issues of concerns and prioritizes those issues into a workplan for the year.

If you are interested in joining the discussion or simply want to receive information on the Permit Issues workgroup, use the Workgroup Signup Form at the bottom of this page. Upon signing up, you will receive details about meetings, handouts, and other related information. Your information will not be shared; you can manage your subscription preferences by following the link at the bottom of every email you receive.

In order to get a better handle on placement of documents and improve searchability, membership is requested to use the document naming convention explained in the document naming conventions guideline. If the submission does not follow the convention, the work group coordator will be responsible for renaming the document before sending the file(s) to be posted. All files must be saved as a *.pdf before sending it to the web contact for posting.
