Wednesday, January 08, 2020

GRANGEVILLE – The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) seeks comment on a draft Idaho Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (IPDES) permit for the City of Grangeville wastewater treatment facility.

The City of Grangeville applied for a wastewater discharge permit for its public wastewater treatment facility located at 225 West North Street, Grangeville, Idaho.

The proposed permit would authorize the discharge of treated municipal wastewater year-round to Threemile Creek for five years. The permit identifies the pollutants of concern and lists the required limits for each pollutant or parameter, and monitoring and reporting requirements necessary to ensure compliance with the permit and protect human health and the environment.

Written comments on the draft permit and fact sheet will be accepted through February 7th, 2020 at 5 p.m. MST. The draft permit and fact sheet are available for public review at DEQ’s state office (1410 N. Hilton St.), DEQ’s Lewiston Regional Office (1118 F St., Lewiston), and on DEQ’s website. A public meeting may be held, if requested in writing, by January 22nd, 2020.

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 of Grangeville and permit number (ID0020036).
