The application of pesticides onto Delaware surface water requires a permit from the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC). Permits for this activity are part of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES).

NPDES Permit Programs


National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System

The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) regulates point sources that discharge pollutants into the waters of Delaware. It helps ensure that the state’s water bodies can meet their designated uses, such as providing drinking water, being safe for swimming or fishing, or supporting aquatic life.



Surface Water Discharges Section

The Surface Water Discharges Section issues permits for industrial and municipal wastewater treatment systems, including stormwater treatment, which discharge into Delaware’s surface waters. It also regulates the management of wastewater sludge. The Section licenses wastewater treatment operators and provides technical assistance and training to help wastewater treatment facilities avoid problems.



Industrial Stormwater Runoff

The Industrial Storm Water Permitting Program is designed to prevent the contamination of storm water runoff from a facility by properly handling and storing materials.
NPDES Permit Programs


Individual NPDES Permits

An individual NPDES permit is tailored to a specific discharge and location. These are typically outfalls from municipal sewage treatment facilities or industrial plants that discharge to surface waters of Delaware. The NPDES permit specifies limitations, monitoring requirements, and other terms and conditions that the permittee must meet in order to be allowed to discharge.
