LPDES Permit Fees

Louisiana Water Pollution Control Fee System Regulation (LAC 33:IX.Chapter 13)

Individual Permit Fees - 

Annual Fees are calculated by multiplying the rating points times the rate factor.  The rating points are computed using the appropriate annual fee rating worksheet.  This worksheet should accompany your draft permit.  The current rate factor for municipal facilities is $148.00/rating point and for all other facilities is $271.96/rating point.  The annual fee shall be paid each year a facility is subject to regulation.  The year corresponds with the state's fiscal year of July 1 through June 30.  For new facilities the annual fee may be prorated to correspond to the start-up date of the facility.  The annual fee for inactive facilities that wish to retain permit coverage may be reduced by 50% any year in which the facility is inactive for the entire fiscal year.  In no case will the fee be reduced below the minimum fee.  The minimum annual fee is currently $345.00.

New, Modified and Reissued Permit Fees shall be 20% of the calculated annual fee, but not less than the minimum annual fee.
