Public Notice Notice of Application for the General

PUBLIC NOTICE Notice of application for the General Land Application System Permit for Large Community Systems, Permit No. GAG278000 The Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) is proposing the reissuance of a General Permit for land application systems (LAS) that utilize subsurface disposal. The General LAS Permit No. GAG278000 allows Class V septic systems to obtain coverage under the permit if those facilities treat domestic wastewater, have a design flow between 10,000 gpd and 150,000 gpd, and they discharge the pretreated domestic wastewater into a subsurface fluid distribution system. This general permit does not allow coverage for the discharge of hazardous substances. The coverage area of the proposed General Permit (No. GAG278000) is statewide. In addition, the permit has been modified to include language for an approved Sludge Management Plan to deliver sludge to another permitted facility for further treatment and ultimate disposal.
