[45 Pa.B. 4986]
[Saturday, August 22, 2015]

 The Department of Environmental Protection (Department), by this notice, informs the public of minor revisions to the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) PAG-10 General Permit for Discharges from Hydrostatic Testing of Tanks and Pipelines. The General Permit became effective on July 18, 2015.

 The Department is making minor revisions to the PAG-10 General Permit to clarify the submission procedures for Annual Reports and the Notice of Intent (NOI) annual installment fee. The documents affected by the revision are the NOI Instructions (3800-PM-BPNPSM0173a), PAG-10 General Permit (3800-PM-BPNPSM0173d) and Annual Report Instructions (3800-PM-BPNPSM0173f).

 Annual Reports should be submitted to the Department office that issued approval of coverage under the PAG-10 General Permit. The $500 annual installment of the NOI fee should be submitted to the Bureau of Point and Non-Point Source Management (BPNPSM). If BPNPSM issued the permit, both the fee and Annual Report should be submitted to BPNPSM.

 The permit document package can be accessed through the Department's eLibrary web site at (select ''Permit and Authorization Packages,'' then ''Point and Non-Point Source Management,'' then ''National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System—NPDES,'' then ''General Permits'' then ''PAG-10 Discharges from Hydrostatic Testing of Tanks and Pipelines'').
