The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) has administratively continued the current statewide construction general permit (2008 CGP) which expires on February 28, 2013.

In accordance with a provision made in SB1289 during the 2012 Legislative session, which amended the AZPDES statute by adding ARS § 49 – 255.01(M), the CGP 2008 will be continued beyond February 28, 2013. According to ADEQ, construction site operators may continue to apply for stormwater permit coverage under the 2008 CGP after February 28, 2013, until the Department’s approval and issuance of the the AZPDES 2013 Construction General Permit (2013 CGP). Approval and issuance are anticipated to occur before May 1, 2013.
