I understand that this application and any permit issued thereto, does not relieve of any obligation for obtaining any other required federal, state, water management district or local permit prior to commencement of activities. I agree to operate and maintain the proposed activity in compliance with permits and laws, unless the EPC authorizes transfer of the permit to a different responsible entity. I understand that my application will not be processed if there is any missing, insufficient, or invalid information or insufficient fees. I understand I may have to provide any additional information/data that may be necessary to provide reasonable assurance of evidence to show that the proposed project will comply with applicable water quality standards or other environmental standards/laws. I agree that upon written concurrence, the EPC may make changes to the application based on revised drawings and/or additional information provided by agent or applicant. I further agree EPC can unilaterally change non-substantive typographically errors. I understand that knowingly making any false statement or representation in this application is a violation of EPC Act and rules, and may result in among other things, revocation of the permit or denial of the application. *
