State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES)

Elimination system
Legislation and/or Regulation:
The New York State Department of Environment Conservation regulates discharges to surface (as opposed to EPA's regulation of Underground Injection Control). Surface discharge (including many septic systems) requires a SPDES permit (State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System) from DEC.

What the SRM Service can do to help:
Training and Workshops:
  • SPDES Awareness Training
  • We can provide information to your staff on procedures that will ensure compliance with SPDES permits issued by the NYS DEC.  
  • Assist the district with writing procedures for compliances with the NYS SPDES permit.
  • Act as a liaison between the school district and the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation.
