Frequent Questions

Will the Proposed Rule deal with the question of what records a permittee must keep for things submitted electronically? Will a facility still need to maintain a paper copy for 3 years or whatever the requirement is?

The time permittees must keep records of their submissions does not change from the paper reporting requirements.  A paper copy does not need to be maintained for an electronic submission that is compliant with the proposed rule; however, permittees must make their NPDES program data available to inspectors upon request.
