NYSDEC Water Withdrawal Permit Reporting Update

Application deadline approaching for smaller non-potable water systems

There is an upcoming regulatory window of Jan 1, 2016 to February 15, 2016 for owners of smaller water systems to submit applications to the NYSDEC.


In New York State, Public Water Supply systems have been required to obtain water withdrawal permits for decades.  In 2013, the NYSDEC enacted new regulations for all water withdrawals in New York State. The former law required water withdrawal permits only for public water suppliers.  Effective with the new law permits are now required for any potable and non-potable water withdrawal system having the capacity to withdraw 100,000 gallons per day (gpd) or more of surface water, groundwater, or combination thereof.
