General Permit Registration

G10-D, G20-C, G35-D, G40-C, G50-C, G60-D, G65-D, G70-D Permit Applications, G70-D Alternative Operating Scenarios and G70-D Annual Certifications must be submitted through the ESS system.

The Permitting Section implements the Air Quality General Permit Program. General permits streamline the permitting process while ensuring compliance with existing Air Quality regulations by incorporating applicable regulations and requirements for each source category.

By demonstrating compliance with the requirements and conditions of the general permit, general permit registration may be granted to the applicant in as little as 31 days. Since registration reduces the need for drafting multiple individual permits and standardizes application review, we can grant general permit registrations to eligible applicants in a more efficient manner and reduce individual permit application backlogs.
