DEQ seeks comment on draft IPDES permit for wastewater treatment facility in Montpelier, ID

Wednesday, November 06, 2019

MONTPELIER—The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is seeking comment on a draft Idaho Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (IPDES) permit for the city of Montpelier in Bear Lake County, Idaho.

The permit would authorize the discharge of treated municipal wastewater from the city's treatment plant, located at 47 Bern Road in Montpelier, Idaho, in May and October to the Bear River for five years. The permit identifies the pollutants of concern and lists the required limits for each pollutant or parameter. It also lists the monitoring and reporting requirements necessary to ensure compliance with the permit and protect human health and the environment.

Written comments on the draft permit, fact sheet, and application will be accepted through December 6 at 5 p.m. MDT. Documents are available for public review at DEQ’s Boise Regional Office (1445 N. Orchard St.) and on DEQ’s website (download at right).

A public hearing may be held if requested in writing by November 20th, 2019, at 5 p.m. MDT.

Comments and questions regarding this process should be directed to Karen Jackson or at https://www.deq.idaho.gov/news-public-comments-events/. Comments should address water quality considerations and include supporting materials where available. Comments should also reference the city name and permit number.
