EPD just made the announcement this afternoon that it has established a "NO ACTION ASSURANCE".
This No Action Assurance is necessary because the new NPDES State General Permits to replace the existing NPDES State General Permits will not be final and effective prior to the expiration date, July 31, 2013, of the existing NPDES State General Permits (Nos. GAR100001, GAR100002 and GAR100003).
For each Notice of Intent (NOI) - Version 2008 filed on or after August 1, 2013, EPD's No Action Assurance is conditioned upon compliance at the construction site with all requirements and conditions of the applicable NPDES State General Permit issued on August 1, 2008.
REMEMBER - once the new permit is issued by the EPD, an existing Permitee will have 90 days to file a re-issuance Notice of Intent.
