These regulations establish a user fee system for point source dischargers that discharge pollutants into the surface waters of the State. The funds from such fees are used by the Department of Environmental Management to develop and operate a pollution monitoring system and to protect, preserve, and upgrade the surface waters into which the discharges flow. The fees hall be individually based on the need for monitoring a facility's discharge because of the potential for environmental degradation that its effluent poses.
