This program of the Water Quality Division of the Department of Environmental Quality sets the point source, biosolids (sewage sludge), and stormwater permitting standards for discharges to the waters of the State of Oklahoma. The law applies to any person or entity that land applies biosolids or prepares it for firing in a biosolids (sewage sludge) incinerator, in addition to those facilities that discharge wastewater to waters of the state. An applicant must acquire or possess a right to use and access the property on which discharge points, facilities, activities or discharge sources are located. The owner/operator must maintain such rights for the duration of the permit term, and provide documentary proof to the DEQ. The fees and specific requirements for discharge are listed in the legislation.
