Maintain Water Permitting Efficiencies

It is equally important the Division of Water maintain the level of service to the business community to ensure water permit application backlogs are reduced and do not create problems with approvals, which are often a key component in implementing expansions of existing businesses and in obtaining new industrial development. The Chamber supports methods that will allow an expedited water permitting process when warranted. For permits that are especially complicated due to the nature of the pollutant being discharged, the Chamber encourages the Cabinet to use alternative permit requirements or establish a variance already allowed by statute in order to avoid unnecessary delays while still being protective of water quality.
