Document Description
The Federal NPS Permit involves the proposed development of Waste Discharge Requirements (WDR) for discharges and threatened discharges of NPS pollution from certain activities conducted by the BLM and the USFS on federal lands. The purpose of the proposed Federal NPS Permit is to ensure the maintenance, protection, and restoration of the quality and beneficial uses of water on federally managed lands and to facilitate federal agency compliance with water quality requirements. The Lahontan Water Board will consider the inclusion of a Clean Water Act Section 401 Water Quality Certification in conjunction with the Waste Discharge Requirements in effort to provide comprehensive Water Board coverage for those activities proposed for regulation under the Federal NPS Permit.
