The objectives of revising the regulations are to support the development of a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Construction General Permit (CGP) by removing conflicting language, adding effectiveness and expiration dates, eliminating the post-rain event inspection requirement, removing the transfer of authorization option, and to correct typographical and grammatical errors.

The proposed amendments and permit may be inspected online on the Delaware Register of Regulations or on the DNREC Sediment and Stormwater website.

Those wishing to offer verbal comments during DNREC virtual public hearings must pre-register no later than noon on the date of the virtual hearing at or by telephone at 302-739-9295.

The Department will accept public comment through the close of business on Wednesday, Dec. 16, 2020. Written comments will be accepted via email to, using the online form at, or by U.S. mail to the address below.
