Point Source Discharge into Surface Waters
Problem: DER regulated point sources of effluent discharge
may also require a Chapter 373 permit, consent for the use
of state lands and a federal NPDES permit.
Although DER sets waste load allocations for effluent
discharge into surface waters, this allocation process is
also reviewed by some WMDs in connection with their
management of surface water permit.
DER classifies surface waters by present and future most
beneficial use. DER issues from district offices a
discharge permit requiring the use of best technology and
compliance with water quality standards for the
classification of the receiving water body. A federal
NPDES permit is issued upon a review for compliance and
Local governments regulate what pretreatment is required of
industrial effluent prior to its discharge into public
