Water Quality Permitting Section

The Water Quality Permitting Section consists of two branches with staff located in the central offices in Raleigh, as well as DENR's seven Regional Offices.

The Wastewater Branch is responsible for permitting and compliance in accordance with the federal National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) program for wastewater that discharges directly to waters of the state.

Also regulated by this branch are sewage collection systems, consisting of sewage lines, pump stations and other conveyances that carry waste to the treatment facility.

The Pretreatment Program controls and documents the discharge of wastewater from Significant and Categorical Industrial Users to the Publicly Owned Treatment Works.

The Wetlands Branch includes oversight of the state's Wetlands 401 Certification program and express permitting unit, transportation permitting, nonpoint source compliance and oversight, and wetlands program development.
