Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation Seafood Processing

AKG520000 Seafood Processors in Alaska GP (Expire/Admin. Extended)

AKG520000, Seafood Processors in Alaska GP. Seafood processors with existing permit coverage under AKG520000 discharging between shore as delineated by mean lower low water (MLLW) and 0.5 nautical miles (nm) from shore may continue permit coverage under AKG520000 until the new permit, AKG521000, is in effect. Continued authorization to discharge under AKG520000 is contingent upon compliance with AKG520000 permit requirements. Permittees shall submit Annual Reports and updated NOIs for material changes to facilities in a timely manner.

Some permittees previously covered by AKG520000 must now apply for coverage under AKG523000 if they will discharge seafood processing waste 0.5 to 3.0 nm from MLLW shore or baseline. Please apply by December 1, 2011 or no later than 90 days prior to anticipated first discharge.

Other permittees may no longer be covered by AKG520000 if they discharge seafood processing waste at sea more than 3.0 nm from shore. Permittees should contact EPA to establish the type of permit coverage needed to discharge more than 3.0 nm from shore.
