Fresh Fruit Packing General Permit

This permit outlines uniform conditions and treatment, discharge, and disposal methods for fresh fruit packing wastewater based on the similarities of wastewater characteristics among facilities.

The combined State Waste Discharge Permit and National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit (NPDES) provides assurance that fruit packers are protecting nearby lakes, rivers, and groundwater when managing the wastewater coming from their facilities.

The current permit went into effect Sept. 1, 2016 and expires Aug. 31, 2021.

To minimize fungicides, insecticides, and rodenticides released into the environment, we issue the Fresh Fruit Packing General Permit (FFPGP).
