EPA Publishes Final 2016 PGP

EPA has announced issuance by all ten EPA Regions of the final 2016 National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System pesticide general permit–the ‘‘2016 PGP.’’ The 2016 PGP, which has an effective date of October 31, 2016, replaces the existing permit (‘‘2011 PGP’’) that expires at midnight on October 31, 2016, and authorizes certain point source discharges from the application of pesticides to waters of the United States in accordance with the terms and conditions described therein. EPA is issuing this permit for five (5) years in all areas of the country where EPA is the NPDES permitting authority.

The new permit is effective on October 31, 2016, and will expire at midnight, October 31, 2021. In accordance with 40 CFR part 23, this permit shall be considered issued for the purpose of judicial review on November 15, 2016.
