The goal of the Storm Water Program is to reduce or eliminate pollutants in storm water. Storm water discharges are generated by runoff from land and impervious areas such as paved streets, parking lots, and building rooftops, during rainfall and snowmelt events. Storm water discharges often contain pollutants in quantities that could adversely affect water quality.
Highlights of Permit Reissuance for the State Dewatering and Contained Water Permits
The state Contained Water permit (2009DB0004) expired on March 18, 2014 and the Excavation Dewatering permit (2009DB0003) expired on March 23, 2014 and both were administratively extended until replacement permits are issued. While entities with coverage under these permits were automatically granted an administrative continuance of permit coverage and are required to continue to comply with the respective permits after its expiration, any new entities are not able to obtain general permit coverage until a new permit is issued. The Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) will exercise enforcement discretion to cover these newly-discharging entities, provided that these entities:
- Meet the respective permit eligibility criteria;
- Notify DEC of their intention to operate in accordance with the respective permit; and
- Comply with all requirements of the respective permit.
Applicants wanting to notify DEC of their intention to operate may submit a Notice of Intent (NOI) to Email Address: DEC.Water.OPAHelp@alaska.gov.

After July 1st the Construction General Permit website will be updated for the new permit.
New to the eNOI System is the CGP eNOI Modification submittal. This submittal allows operators to electronically file the CGP Notice of Intent Modification form. For additional information, see the "Step-by-Step" guidance document.
