Water Diversion Registration Reporting Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)
Holders of consumptive diversion permits are required to file annual water diversion reports as a condition of their permit using the same form provided below for registered diverters as discussed above. Separate forms should be completed for each authorized diversion as described in the permit or for each diversion registered in 1983. 

Once completed for an entire yearly reporting cycle, reporting forms should be signed electronically and emailed the following to DEEP.WaterUseReport@ct.gov along with any other scanned annual report documentation as specified by permit.  All supplemental annual report documentation should be submitted as a single “PDF” document (file size limitations may apply).
 
Note: It is not necessary to mail a hardcopy follow-up of your electronically submitted report.

If, and only if electronic submittal is not possible, mail a signed hardcopy of your annual report package to:

Director, DEEP Water Planning and Management Division, 79 Elm Street, Hartford, CT 06106

Exemptions

If you were required to obtain a permit for a non-consumptive use, such as a stream channel alteration, culvert, or pond dredging, please consult your permit for any reporting or notice requirements. 

No reporting is required for a non-consumptive diversion registration such as a stream channel alteration, impoundment, or culvert.

If you operate a consumptive diversion where water is withdrawn and removed from its native location, but withdraw less than 50,000 gallons of water during any 24-hour period and will not exceed that daily volume, you are exempt from the requirements of the Water Diversion Policy Act and not required to report. 
 
Discontinued Diversions
Please contact the DEEP Water Planning and Management Division at (860) 424-3704 or deep.waterdiversionreporting@ct.gov if you have permanently discontinued your registered or permitted diversion, or sold or transferred the diversion to another party, so that we may update our records.
