If a facility is subject to Rule 6, facility representatives must submit an NOI letter, a proof of publication, and a fifty (50) dollar filing fee to IDEM either after notification by IDEM or prior to beginning industrial activities at the facility.
Newly constructed industrial facilities must submit an NOI at least 90 days prior to starting industrial operations. Existing industrial facilities that have already obtained a Rule 6 General Permit are required to re-submit an NOI at least 90 days prior to the expiration date of the industrial facility’s permit. Existing industrial facilities that are not regulated by Rule 6, but meet the applicability of Rule 6 are required to submit an NOI and therefore are operating without a required permit.
A Notice of Intent form (State Form 51286, available on the IDEM Forms page) has been developed for facilities meeting the applicability requirements of Rule 6.
Note: Always verify with the website to ensure that you are using the most current form.
The NOI form contains specific instructions to assist the applicant in completing the form. In addition, the following information and links may prove helpful:
Note: Facilities permitted under Rule 6 are also subject to an annual fee of $100. Each facility permitted will receive an invoice from IDEM.
The original NOI must be submitted to the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM). The completed form and all attachments should be sent to the following address:
Indiana Department of Environmental Management
