The Details of WP84: Reclaimed Water Use

What you need for WP84: Reclaimed Water Use

These permits are required for the use of reclaimed water. The permit will include both the reclaimed water treatment and the transmission facilities.

You must apply for this permit if you propose to construct, install, modify, operate, or maintain a reclaimed-water system. 

Please note: A filing under this permit category will not be necessary if the project has a permit that regulates the reclaimed water usage. For example, if a project proposes to use reclaimed water for irrigation or for toilet flushing combined with the disposal of additional flow to the ground, then a groundwater discharge permit issued under 314 CMR 5.00 will be required. Conversely, if a facility with an existing NPDES permit proposes to use reclaimed water as industrial boiler feed or send to a powerplant for cooling water, then a reclaimed water permit issued under 314 CMR 20.00 will be required.
