Fees for new applications are composed of two parts: an application fee and an annual fee, unless otherwise noted. Fees must be submitted at the time of application. No fees are required at the time of application renewal.

A Land Use Compatibility Statement (LUCS) signed by the local land use authority must also be submitted with a new application, unless otherwise noted. For renewal applications, submittal of a LUCS is only required if major changes have been made at the facility or if there is no LUCS on file with DEQ.
