Surface Water Detections Data Collection

This form is used to provide the Response & Remediation Program (RRP) with updated surface water data for sites on the Hazardous Site Inventory (HSI) that have documented releases of contaminants to surface waters.  Pursuant to Sections 305(b) and 303(d) of the Clean Water Act, EPD must submit all available surface water quality data for the state on a biennial schedule to EPA.  The RRP will compile the surface water data for HSI sites and submit to the Watershed Protection Branch of EPD.  Surface water data collected during 2011 and 2012, or the most recent data available, should be submitted to the RRP no later than July 1, 2013.

Hazardous Waste Management: Biennial Report

The Hazardous Waste Report is the implementing guidance to support the reporting by large quantity hazardous waste generators (LQGs) and treatment, storage, or disposal facilities (TSDFs) required by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 (RCRA).  RCRA Sections 3002 and 3004, as amended by the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments of 1984 (HSWA), requires reporting to EPA or to authorized States at least every two years.  EPD adopts Federal Hazardous Waste Regulations by reference.  The Biennial Hazardous Waste Report is collected nationally every two years.  Reports are due by March 1, 2014. 

Small and Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generators that were LQGs at any time during 2013 are required to report.  Facilities notified as LQGs who did not generate LQG quantities during 2013 are required to submit the Certification of Non-Filer Form.

The form and instructions will not be mailed.  They can be accessed from the link below:

Hazardous Waste Management: Waste Reduction Plan

All Large Quantity Generators (LQGs) are required to submit a Waste Reduction Plan every two years at the time of the Biennial Report (see section above). This plan is to outline current waste production at the facility and plans for future reduction of that waste.   Reports for 2014 are due by March 1, 2014 in conjunction with the 2013 Biennial Hazardous Waste Report.

Short term LQGs are required to submit an abbreviated report as explained in the instructions.

Hazardous Waste Management: RCRA Notification

This form and associated instructions are designed to help you determine if you are subject to the requirements under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) for notifying the State of Georgia of your regulated waste activities. The instructions will assist you in obtaining an U.S. EPA Identification Number by completing and submitting EPA Form 8700-12 for initial notifications, or in revising EPA Form 8700-12 subsequent notifications. You are required to complete an EPA Form 8700-12 whenever any of the facility information contained on the form changes. The instructions also include appendices on typical waste streams produced by small quantity generators and typical waste streams and EPA Hazardous Waste Numbers. This link is to

Please note that U.S. EPA issued a revised form in November 2009 that contains sections for information regarding generation of Hazardous Secondary Materials (HSM).  Georgia has not adopted the rule that includes HSM and is not yet authorized to begin collecting this data.  The HSM section of the form is not applicable for Georgia facilities until further notice.

Signed original forms should be mailed to (numbers cannot be issued from FAX or copies):

Hazardous Waste Management: RCRA Permit Application Part A

The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) requires anyone who owns or operates a facility where hazardous waste is treated, stored, or disposed to have a permit. RCRA establishes a procedure for obtaining interim status which allows existing facilities to continue operating until a final hazardous waste permit is issued. This form and associated instructions are submitted to the State of Georgia and are required for a Federal permit to treat, store, or dispose of hazardous waste under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). The form defines the processes to be used for treatment, storage, and disposal of hazardous wastes; the design capacity of such processes and the specific hazardous wastes to be handled at a facility. Interim status is also explained.
