The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) is proposing a renewal of the ECL SPDES General Permit for CAFOs (GP-0-16-001) by publishing and requesting comments on the Draft ECL SPDES General Permit for CAFOs: GP-0-22-001.

Construction of a point source that is designed, constructed, operated and maintained to not discharge manure or process wastewater is deemed eligible for coverage under ECL SPDES General Permit GP-0-22-001 and must obtain coverage prior to operation of the CAFO facility.
