City of Jerome Wastewater Treatment Plant applies to DEQ to modify air quality permit to construct
Monday, December 18, 2017
JEROME — The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has received a request from the City of Jerome to modify the air quality permit to construct (PTC) that regulates emissions from the city's wastewater treatment plant.
The proposed permit modification will allow the city to increase the hydrogen sulfide concentration of the anaerobic digester gas being combusted in the boilers and the flare. Emissions must remain within legally allowable limits.
A public comment period will be provided on the proposed permit if a written request is submitted to DEQ by January 2, 2018, at 5 p.m. MST.
The permit application is available for review on DEQ’s website (download at right).
Submit requests for a 30-day public comment period and questions regarding the public comment process by mail or email to:
