It is the purpose of this regulation to adopt standards applicable to the storage, discharge, or disposal of any waste which, if unregulated, will cause pollution of waters of the state or result in wastes being placed in a location where it is likely to cause pollution of the waters of the state. These standards are intended to protect public health and the environment, and prevent, control, or abate pollution.

The State Water Permit Regulation is implemented to adopt standards applicable to the storage, discharge, or disposal of any waste that, if unregulated, will cause pollution of waters of the state or result wastes being placed in a location where it is likely to cause pollution of the waters of the state. This regulation applies to all persons proposing to construct, alter, extend, or operate any storage, discharge, or disposal system that does not discharge directly to waters of the state, and the operation of which, if unregulated, will cause pollution of waters of the state or result in wastes being placed in a location where it is likely to cause pollution of the waters of the state. This regulation does not apply to liquid animal waste management systems regulated under APC&EC (Arkansas Pollution Control and Ecology Commission) Regulation 5 or underground injection control (UIC) facilities regulated under APC and EC Regulation 17 or Class II UIC wells permitted by the Arkansas Oil and Gas Commission. This regulation also does not apply to storage or disposal systems permitted under APC&EC Regulation 1 or Regulation 4 or to storage, discharge, or disposal systems that have been issued any NPDES permit other than a stormwater permit.
