Public Notice Notice of Proposed National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System General Permit to Discharge Treated Wastewater into Waters of the State of Georgia. The Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) proposes to issue a modification to the existing National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System General Permit for Mining and Processing Facility discharges, issued on August 1, 2016. The proposed modification will replace the existing in-stream delta turbidity limit of 25 NTUs with a numeric effluent turbidity daily average limit of 50 NTUs and a daily maximum effluent limit of 75 NTUs. NPDES General Permit No. GAG300000 authorizes categories of applicants to discharge process wastewater from mining and processing facilities to waters of the State under the Federal Clean Water Act. The proposed NPDES General Permit area is state-wide. NPDES Permits are valid for a maximum of five years. Persons wishing to comment upon or object to the proposed determinations are invited to submit same in writing to the EPD address below, or via e-mail at EPDcomments@dnr.ga.gov, no later than thirty (30) days after this notification. If you choose to e-mail your comments, please be sure to include the words "National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System General Permit for Mining and Processing Facilities" in the subject line to ensure that your comments will be forwarded to the correct staff. All comments received prior to or on that date will be considered in the formulation of final determinations regarding the application. A public hearing may be held where the EPD Director finds a significant degree of public interest in a proposed permit or group of permits. Additional information regarding public hearing procedures is available by writing the Environmental Protection Division. A fact sheet or copy of the draft permit is available by writing the Environmental Protection Division. A copying charge of 10 cents per page will be assessed. The permit application, draft permit, comments received, and other information are available for review at 2 MLK, Jr. Dr. Suite 1152E, Atlanta, GA 30334, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
