NEW--DEP to release new Ch. 102 epermiting system

The Chapter 102 ePermit System is tentatively going live on January 25, 2021 for PAG-02 General NPDES NOIs and Amendments.   The use of the Chapter 102 ePermit system is voluntary at this time.  DEP will be providing external training on the morning and afternoon of January 21, 2021 for applicants and consultants. The morning training is scheduled from 8:30 – 11:30 am and will explain how to get access to the system, how applicants can give consultants access and permissions within ePermitting and provide an overview of the ePermitting system.  The afternoon session will be open for questions and answers and allow time for additional demonstrations of the system if needed. 

These trainings will be recorded and posted afterwards on the Bureau of Clean Water Chapter 102 ePermit System website.  Please refer to this website for the latest information and updated regarding Chapter 102 ePermitting.

Centre County is in the midst of drafting a Countywide Action Plan (CAP), which provides a roadmap for our county and partners to follow to reach Centre County’s clean water goals. The initiatives outlined in the plan are intended to protect the future of Centre County’s natural resources while reaching other community goals.

Prior to developing our draft CAP, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection produced ‘Toolboxes’ specific to each county to assist with their CAP development. The Centre County Toolbox was developed as a starting point for our county to use to improve local water quality. It contains useful and specific data and information relevant to our county to assist with reaching our local water quality goals. To view it, click the Centre County Toolbox, or find more info and view it at PA-DEP Countywide Action Plans page.

The Centre County Conservation District along with Centre County Planning & Community Development Office and HRG held an open house comment opportunity on December 18th, from 12-1 PM via ZOOM. At that time, stakeholders shared their comments, questions, and concerns with respect to our current draft CAP. The deadline for comments has been extended by DEP at our request to accommodate more stakeholder input. If you have additional comments regarding the draft CAP, please direct them to Allyson Ulsh, by 1/15/2021 close of business.
