Guidance Document Information
Title License Requirements for Operators of Small Wastewater Treatment Facilities
Document ID 7210
Summary Board staff has been informed that new guidance from the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) requires operators of small wastewater treatment facilities (less than 1,000 gallons per day) to hold a Class 4 wastewater works operator license in order to meet DEQ’s updated permitting requirements. This could be problematic for an individual who is seeking licensure because the Board’s regulations require the experience to have been gained at a classified facility, and the relevant facilities in this situation were previously unclassified.
