Virginia Administrative Code
Title 9. Environment
Agency 25. State Water Control Board
Chapter 790. Sewage Collection and Treatment Regulations

9VAC25-790-80. CTC procedures.

A. CTCs are issued by the director, but all requests for a CTC shall be directed initially to the area engineer that serves the area where the sewerage system or treatment works is located. The procedure for obtaining the permit includes one or more of the following steps:

1. The submission of an application;

2. A preliminary engineering conference;

3. The establishment of the reliability classification of the sewage collection or treatment works;

4. Submission and evaluation of a preliminary engineering proposal or concept;

5. The submission and evaluation of plans, specifications, design criteria and other data in the number requested by the area engineer;

6. The evaluation of an operation and maintenance manual;

7. The evaluation of a sludge management plan.

B. A formal technical evaluation involving a detailed engineering analysis of the plans, specifications and other design documents by the area engineer may be required. Advanced treatment designs (Article 8 of Part III), nutrient control designs (Article 10 of Part III), and alternative technology (9VAC25-790-210) will typically require a formal technical evaluation. A formal technical evaluation of submitted documents prior to issuance of a permit in accordance with this chapter may be waived following a review of the preliminary engineering proposal or concept provided that the owner's consultant submits a statement that the design will meet the requirements established through this chapter and standards contained in this chapter.

C. Notification. Informal and formal technical evaluations will be completed and the owner notified at least informally of the resulting decision within 30 days of receipt of complete documents unless the director grants the area engineer additional time to complete such evaluations on a specified design. In addition, written notice of the decision will be provided to the owner no later than 15 days after completion of the evaluation.
