The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) today released the 2024 Idaho Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Program (IPDES) Permit Issuance Plan.

The plan provides the regulated community, US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and other state, federal, tribal, and interested entities with information on permits being worked on for the next two years. It also prioritizes the facilities with pending permit applications and/or administratively continued permits under the IPDES Program.

DEQ assumed delegated authority for municipal, nonmunicipal, general, and stormwater permits on July 1, 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021, respectively. With this change in authority, all permits for discharges into waters of the United States in Idaho not on tribal land are issued by DEQ, in accordance with the Memorandum of Agreement between DEQ and EPA.
