APDES 2017 Pesticide General Permit (PGP)

Highlights of the Pesticide General Permit

DEC has reissued an APDES general permit to regulate source discharges of pollutants associated with the application of biological pesticides or chemical pesticides that leave a residue. This permit is commonly called the Pesticide General Permit (PGP). The PGP applies statewide except for lands within the Metlakatla Indian Reserve and the Denali National Park Reserve.

The PGP covers point source discharges of pollutants associated with the application of biological pesticides or chemical pesticides that leave a residue from the following use patterns:

  1. mosquito and other flying insect pest control;
  2. aquatic weed and algae control;
  3. aquatic nuisance animal control; and
  4. forest canopy pest control.

Note: To determine if you need to submit a Notice of Intent (NOI), or a summary of your requirements under the PGP, you can use the Pesticide GP Decision Tool for assistance. For permittees that are required to submit a NOI, the annual permit fee is $250.
