Draft Water Quality Permits

Atlantic Salmon Net Pen Aquaculture

December 27, 2018 - February 25, 2019

We invite comments on the draft NPDES permit documents.  Visit our webpage or see the event information below for dates and locations of our workshops and public hearings. 

  Updating these permits will regulate Atlantic salmon farming until the 2022 ban. To raise fish in net pens, we require individual National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits for each facility.The permit is the tool that requires Best Management Practices, monitoring, and reporting to ensure water quality standards are met.
