Submitting a Notice of Intent

The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) has established an online tool to help those covered by Delaware’s general NPDES permits meet their reporting requirements under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES).

General NPDES permits are issued for a given state-wide activity, as opposed to individual permits developed and issued on a case-by-case basis for activities not covered by general permits.

The Electronic Notice of Intent (eNOI) system provides construction sites, industrial facilities, pesticide users, small municipal stormwater systems a tool to submit and manage Notice of Intent (NOI) applications.
