Industrial or Nondomestic Discharges - Applications

An operator of an industrial facility requesting to discharge wastewater to surface waters must apply for an Alaska Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (APDES) permit. If the discharge is not to surface waters (i.e. it is to land or subsurface), then the operator applies for a state permit.

Two types of permits are available. An individual permit is issued to a specific facility or for a specific disposal activity. A general permit is issued on a state-wide, regional, or geographical basis for a category of disposal activities that are similar in nature and will comply with applicable water quality standards.

All applicants requesting an individual APDES permit must complete Form 1, General Application, in addition to the APDES application specific to your operations and discharge.
