NSR Application Forms


Permit Applications should continue to use the appropriate forms and attachments. DAQ is only making changes to allow for electronic submittal (via email) of Permit Applications to facilitate faster submittal of Applications and adapting to telecommute and work from home situations. As we roll this process out, we reserve the right to make changes to improve the process for all involved. Please make sure to check this page for changes before submitting a Permit Application or Permit Determination.

Please review the tips and instructions on this page before an application is emailed.

Formatting Your Email Submission

Subject Line

The subject line for your email should be headed: [Company Name; Facility Location]


If possible, applications should be scanned as ONE PDF file and attached to the email. If all attachments to the email are larger than 25mB, then the email will not be received. Therefore, when scanning the application, please scan with a medium resolution or as a compact PDF. If the application is still larger than 25 MB, then separate the application and send each section as a separate email and make a notation in the email subject line of the section number that is attached.

Cover Letter

Please fill out the email cover letter and include it with the email.


You may physically sign and scan any applications, but electronic signatures are also accepted.

Application Forms

Permit determinations are a process whereby a facility may ascertain whether or not a permit to construct, modify or relocate is necessary. Once a permit determination application is filled out and submitted, DAQ engineers will decide within 30 days if further action is required. There are NO FEES connected with this process.
