NPDES Individual application paper forms are still currently accepted through the mail, although beginning July 1, 2019 these forms will be required to be submitted electronically through the Ohio EPA eBusiness Center and STREAMS service. NPDES General Permit application forms have been required to be submitted electronically since 2016.

PLEASE NOTE : Consultants CANNOT PIN (i.e., electronically sign) applications on behalf of their clients. Consultants can COMPLETE and SAVE an application then DELEGATE it to their client to PIN and submit. This can be completed within minutes though -- see the one-page walkthrough guide to make this simple for the client.
