DEQ seeks comment on draft IPDES permit for City of Viola

Friday, January 10, 2020

VIOLA – The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) seeks comment on a draft Idaho Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (IPDES) permit for the Viola Water and Sewer District wastewater treatment facility.

The Viola Water and Sewer District applied for a wastewater discharge permit for its public wastewater treatment facility located at Trestle Road, Viola, Idaho.

The proposed permit would authorize the discharge of treated municipal wastewater year-round to Fourmile 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 10th, 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 24th, 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 Viola Water and Sewer District and permit number (ID0026310).
