Please be advised!
As of June 9, 2017 Knox County will no longer participate in the Qualifying Local Program. Starting June 12, 2017, any applicant seeking coverage under the state’s Construction General Permit will need to apply through the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC). Any developments in Knox County greater than or equal to 1 acre or sites that are part of a larger common plan of development now need two separate permits prior to land disturbance activities. Please submit the Erosion Prevention and Sediment Control plans (EPSC) plans to our Plans Review staff at Knox County Stormwater. Contact the TDEC Environmental Field Office (865-594-6035) for more information. Check back to this webpage for more information as we add updates. MORE INFO
