Course Description: 

This seminar will provide an overview of and requirements for the EPA’s New Dewatering and Remediation General Permit (DRGP). This permit is required at certain MCP sites that require dewatering during remediation. Topics will include but are not limited to:

  • How this permit differs from the expired dewatering and remediation permits;
  • The separate but cooperative roles of EPA and MassDEP in approving DRGPs;
  • Application and reporting requirements using new e-reporting tools;
  • Changes to effluent limitations and monitoring requirements; and
  • Endangered species, historic preservation, and environmental justice reviews.

The last 30 minutes of the seminar will be devoted to Questions and Answers. The speakers have asked us to solicit your questions in advance; we encourage you to please send them to [email protected].
