Effective January 1, 2015, the minimum reporting threshold has been lowered to 300,000 gallons withdrawn
from surface or groundwater sources in any 30-day period. Annual reporting must include monthly water
withdrawal as mandated under the Water Resources Protection Act. The LQU reporting method has changed from
paper forms to digital format. Large quantity users are now required to submit their annual water usage in
the WVDEP's Electronic Submission System.
