Fees, Applications, and Compliance Tracking System (FACTS)

FACTS is the Water Protection Bureau’s online system to apply for and manage wastewater and stormwater discharge permits. All permits, individual surface and groundwater as well as general permits, are included in the system.

The only "general permit" exceptions are for 318 and 401 authorizations (respectively, these are Short-Term Water Quality Standard for Turbidity Related to Construction Activity and Water Quality Certification for Other Federal Permits & Licenses). These authorizations will be added in a future development phase of the system. For questions or assistance, please call 406-444-5388 or contact Gina Self by email at: gself@mt.gov
