CANYON COUNTY —The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) seeks comment on a draft wastewater reuse permit renewal for the Brittania Heights Subdivision.
Brittania Heights Wastewater owns a municipal wastewater treatment and reuse facility and applies recycled water to landscaped common areas throughout the Brittania Heights Subdivision.
The draft permit would allow the facility to irrigate with recycled water for a period of six years and establishes monitoring requirements, limits on nutrient and hydraulic loading, and buffer zones established by DEQ to protect public health and the environment. As part of the permitting process, the facility was required to show that its operation would not cause public health or environmental concerns.
Written comments on the draft permit will be accepted through August 2, 2021, at 5 p.m. MDT.
The draft permit and staff analysis are available for public review at DEQ’s State Office (1445 N. Orchard Street) and on DEQ’s website.
Submit comments electronically on DEQ’s website or by mail or email to:
