2 2 Purpose of Today’s Session  Explain Permit Reissuance Schedule and Public Process  Explain changes proposed by Ecology  Answer questions

3 3 Reissuance Background  Federal regulations: NPDES Permits cant be issued for more than 5 years  Current Permit expires Jan 1, 2015  Federal regulations: Facilities must re- apply 180 days before expiration Ecology sent instructions in May Ecology sent instructions in May Electronic Applications Electronic Applications Due date: July 5, 2014 Due date: July 5, 2014

4 4 Reissuance Schedule  May 7: Ecology released Draft Permit and Fact Sheet Began Public Comment Period Began Public Comment Period  May-June: Public Workshops/Hearings  June 20: Close Public Comment Period Ecology reviews public comments Ecology reviews public comments Makes appropriate revisions Makes appropriate revisions
