ADEQ AZPDES General Permits

Welcome to the Smart NOI program. This site is designed to provide you with a quick and easy way to file a Notice of Intent (NOI) for permit coverage, apply for a waiver, or prepare a Notice of Termination (NOT) to terminate coverage under the select AZPDES General Permit.

NOTE: While we are upgrading the SMART NOI System to accommodate our new fees, the ability to apply for permit coverage using an Electronic Signature has been temporarily discontinued.  While you may still apply for an E-signature account AND file for CGP and MSGP coverage using our SMART NOI system, you will need to print, sign and return all required forms to us with the necessary fees in order to obtain permit coverage.  We apologize for any inconvenience.  We will notify users via the Smart NOI system and our e-mail subscription service when application by e-Signature is restored.


As of July 1, 2011 there is a fee for submitting a Notice of Intent (NOI) for coverage under an AZPDES permit (including Multi-Sector General Permit and Construction General Permit).

 * If the ADEQ Smart NOI System has informed you that a MSGP Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) is required, please submit the SWPPP with the NOI. ADEQ must conduct an initial review to determine if a SWPPP is required under the terms of the MSGP. If a detailed review of the SWPPP is required, then ADEQ will send you an invoice for the additional fee of $1,000 for the SWPPP review.

You can use the AZPDES General Permits System to:

  • Apply for an E-Signature account to expedite coverage.
  • Fill out a Smart NOI even if you don't meet the definition of an authorized signatory (the system lets you complete the form for later signature by the appropriate signatory).
  • Electronically sign your Smart NOI or Permit Waiver application.
  • Determine Waiver eligibility (You must be an approved E-signatory to obtain a Permit Waiver Certification)
  • Prepare your NOT, even if you submitted a paper NOI.
