Individual NPDES Permits - Wastewater Permit Information Exchange
To proceed to WWPIE, please use the following link: Wastewater Permit Information Exchange (WWPIE)
WWPIE has three main functions:
In WWPIE, you may search for active individual NPDES permits by proceeding to the search page. The facility pages in WWPIE provide basic information on permits, permit delay reasons (if applicable), and links to the permit documents. General Permits Nos. 1 - 7 are not included in WWPIE and facilities covered by these permits will not appear in the search. Only final and draft individual NPDES permits are included in WWPIE. Expired, closed, or revoked permits are not searchable.
Persons interested in NPDES permitting in Iowa can register, save searches, and comment on draft NPDES permits in WWPIE. When an individual NPDES permit is drafted, there is a 45-day public notice period in which comments can be submitted on the draft permit. WWPIE allows for the submittal of electronic comments during the public notice period. In addition, registered users can opt to receive email notifications when individual permits are drafted or finalized in a specific search area, so users can be notified of new draft permits or can track permit issuance. Please view the WWPIE User Manual or the FAQ document in WWPIE for more information on registering, saving searches, commenting, and receiving notifications in WWPIE.
Permittees or their designees can register and submit new or renewal applications for individual NPDES permits in WWPIE. Permittees will receive a permit application letter in the mail that will contain information on submitting a renewal application via paper or in WWPIE. Entities interested in applying for a permit for a new discharger can register and submit a new permit notification form on WWPIE. Please view the WWPIE User Manual or the FAQ document in WWPIE for more information on registering as an applicant or signatory, completing permit applications, and submitting permit applications in WWPIE.
For questions on WWPIE, please refer to the WWPIE User Manual or contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
