National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System General Permit for Operation of Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (PAG-12) Annual Report and Annual Notice of Intent Installment Fee Submission Deadline Extension
[50 Pa.B. 6961]
[Saturday, December 5, 2020]
The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) is providing notice to the public of an extension to submit annual reports and annual Notice of Intent (NOI) installment fee payments related to the amended National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System General Permit for Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFO), PAG-12.
The Department published notice of the availability of a final amended PAG-12 at 50 Pa.B. 6060 (October 31, 2020). To access the amended General Permit and related documents, visit www.depgreenport.state.pa.us/elibrary/ (select ''Permit and Authorization Packages,'' then ''Clean Water,'' then ''PAG-12 NPDES General Permit for Operation of Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations 3800-PM-BCW0032,'' then ''Amended PAG-12 NPDES General Permit for Operation of Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations—Effective 01 Jan 2021 3800-PM-BCW0032'').
Part A, Section III.D.1. of the amended General Permit indicates that the CAFO Annual Report is to be submitted by January 1 of each year. Given that permittees and their consultants must focus on the preparation and submission of timely and complete NOIs by January 1, 2021, to ensure continuation of coverage under the amended General Permit, and recognizing the ongoing impacts that the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has had on permittees and their consultants, the Department is administratively extending the upcoming CAFO Annual Report submission deadline from January 1, 2021, to February 15, 2021. Prior to preparation and submission of NOIs, applicants should review and understand the NOI instructions for amended PAG-12 General Permit. The NOI instructions include important information regarding NOI completion and submission.
Similarly, Part A, Section III.D.3. of the amended General Permit requires submission of the annual NOI installment fee payment by January 1 of each year. For permittees who had coverage under the General Permit prior to January 1, 2021, the Department is also administratively extending the upcoming deadline for submission of the annual NOI installment fee payment from January 1, 2021, to February 15, 2021.
