Wednesday, December 09, 2020

WHITE BIRD — The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) seeks comment on a draft Idaho Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (IPDES) permit for the City of White Bird Publicly Owned Treatment Works.

The city applied for a wastewater discharge permit for its wastewater treatment facility, located on River Road in White Bird, Idaho.

The proposed permit would authorize the discharge of treated municipal wastewater year round to Whitebird Creek for five years. The permit identifies the pollutants of concern and 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 January 8, 2021, 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 December 23, 2020 at 5 p.m. MST.

Comments and questions regarding this process should be directed to Matt Stutzman or DEQ’s Public Comments page. Comments should address water quality considerations and include supporting materials where available. Comments should also reference the City of White Bird Publicly Owned Treatment Works and permit number (ID0024252).
