  * Permits Expiration Year - When a general permit expires and is not renewed,
   it is Administratively Continued, allowing coverage under that general permit
   to continue until the renewed permit is issued.

** Planned Renewal Year - This designates the year in which the Division plans
   on renewing a general permit. The actual completion of the renewal depends
   on time restraints, resource availability, and emergency requests or requirements.

***Permit will be terminated once existing permit coverages are terminated
    or converted to new permit coverage.
