2. The fee, together with the application and oil discharge contingency plan, shall be sent to the department at the following mailing address:

Department of Environmental Quality

3. Notifications and correspondence for which a fee is not applicable should be mailed to the department as specified in 9VAC25-91-70.

B. ODCP application.

1. ODCP application fees are as follows:
