The Department of Environmental Protection published notice it has extended the term of the basic General NPDES Permit covering Stormwater Associated With Construction Activities - PAG-02 for another 5 years. (Dec. 7 PA Bulletin)
The PAG-02 General Permit is intended to provide NPDES permit coverage to persons proposing an earth disturbance activity (other than agricultural plowing or tilling activities, animal heavy use areas, timber harvesting activities, oil and gas activities and road maintenance activities) involving earth disturbance greater than or equal to 1 acre, or an earth disturbance on any portion, part or during any stage of a larger common plan of development or sale that involves greater than or equal to 1 acre of disturbance, in accordance with 25 Pa. Code § 102.5(a) (relating to permit requirements).
