DEQ seeks comment on draft water reuse permit for city of Kuna park
Wednesday, November 01, 2017
KUNA — The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is seeking public comment on a draft wastewater reuse permit for a city of Kuna park in Ada County.
The permit authorizes the city to operate a wastewater and reuse system at Bernie Fisher Park on the Kuna greenbelt near the intersection of North Linder Avenue and Swan Falls Road. It allows filtered and disinfected recycled water from a splash pad to be used to irrigate 18 acres of grass at the park, ball fields, and greenbelt during the growing season.
As part of the permitting process, the city is required to show how it will address health and environmental concerns, including methods of preventing surface and ground water contamination.
The draft permit specifies requirements established by DEQ to protect public health and the environment.
Written comments on the draft permit will be accepted through December 1, 2017, at 5 p.m. MST.
The draft permit and staff analysis are available for public review at DEQ’s Boise Regional Office and on DEQ’s website (download at right).
Submit comments electronically on DEQ’s website or by mail or email to:
