DEQ announces notice of public hearing on the intent to approve a draft hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal permit modification for the Idaho Nuclear Technology and Engineering Center liquid waste management system at the Idaho National Laboratory

The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) announces a public hearing on the intent to approve a draft hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal permit modification for the Idaho Nuclear Technology and Engineering Center liquid waste management system at the Idaho National Laboratory.

DEQ is proposing to issue a modified hazardous waste storage and treatment facility partial permit for the Idaho Nuclear Technology and Engineering Center Liquid Waste Management System. The modified permit is based on the Class 3 modification request submitted by the facility on June 2. The requested modifications address changes to the design and operation of the Integrated Waste Treatment Unit (IWTU). Such modifications are not unilaterally approved by DEQ.

Before approval, the public and the applicant are provided an opportunity to comment on the modified portions of the draft partial permit prepared by DEQ. During the 45-day public comment period, DEQ received written notice of opposition to the draft permit and a request for a public hearing. The
public meeting will take place virtually via Zoom on December 20, 2021, at 6 p.m. MST.

The draft permit, fact sheet, public notice, and public hearing notice are available for public review at DEQ’s state office (1410 N. Hilton St.) and on DEQ’s Public Comment Opportunities page. Written comments on the draft permit will be accepted through December 20, 2021, at midnight. Submit comments electronically on DEQ’s website or by mail or email to:
