What happens after you submit your survey?
After reviewing your survey form, KCIW may be able to make a permitting decision based on the survey form or we will request that your facility submit a wastewater discharge permit application. KCIW will contact you with further instructions.
How much advance notice is needed to obtain a new approval to discharge industrial wastewater?
The time it takes (either 60 or 90 days) to obtain approval to discharge depends upon the type and amount of wastewater a company discharges to the sewer.
Companies that are planning to start discharging industrial wastewater from a new facility, or to start discharging wastewater from a new process at an existing operation, must file applications according to the following criteria: if the proposed operation will be subject to a federal categorical pretreatment standard, for instance metal finishing or centralized waste treatment, then the application must be filed at least 90 days prior to the start of discharge.
All non-categorical dischargers must apply at least 60 days prior to the start of discharge.
The sooner applicants contact KCIW to discuss their applications, the better!
