APDES – Pesticide General Permit
Highlights of the Pesticide General Permit (PGP)
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.
