DEQ seeks comment on draft IPDES permit for the city of Potlatch

Tuesday, September 01, 2020

Potlatch—The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) seeks comment on a draft Idaho Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (IPDES) permit for the city of Potlatch wastewater treatment facility.

The city applied for a wastewater discharge permit for its wastewater treatment facility located at 1630 Flannigan Creek Road in Potlatch, Idaho.

The proposed permit would authorize the discharge of treated municipal wastewater from November 1 through July 31 to the Palouse River for five years. The permit identifies the pollutants of concern, 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 October 1, 2020, at 5 p.m. PDT. 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, Idaho), and on DEQ’s website (download at right). A public meeting may be held, if requested in writing, by September 15, 2020.

Comments should address water quality considerations and include supporting materials where available. Comments should also reference the city of Potlatch and permit number (ID0022501).
