The Details

What you need

Under the Groundwater Discharge Permit Program regulations (314 CMR 5.00), MassDEP may administratively renew a permit to a non-industrial groundwater discharge which the agency regulates. Administrative renewal consists of extending the existing permit for an additional 5 years, provided that no changes to the permit are required or requested and all of the conditions of 314 CMR 5.12(9)(a) - (j) are met.

You must apply for this renewal if you hold a valid individual groundwater discharge permit and wish to continue the permitted activity beyond the expiration date of the existing permit, and you do not want to make any changes to the current permit.
