Standard Permit
Under Clean Water Act 401, a federal agency cannot issue a permit or license for an activity that may result in a discharge to waters of the U.S. until the state or tribe where the discharge would originate has granted or waived 401 certification. All states, territories and more than 36 tribes have 401 certification, but in instances where the discharge originates within a jurisdiction without 401 authority, EPA is the certifying agency.
