DEQ seeks comment on draft 401 water quality certification for Eastside Drive bridge replacement

Accepting comments from October 5, 2021, through October 26, 2021.

The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) seeks comment on a draft 401 water quality certification for the Eastside Drive bridge replacement.

Valley County Road and Bridge is proposing to replace the Eastside Drive Bridge over the North Fork Payette River in Valley County, Idaho. The project will remove and replace the existing two-span, single-lane bridge with a new single span structure with two lanes of travel. Minor realignment of the existing approaches is anticipated to meet roadway geometric standards. In addition, the project will replace one arch culvert, west of the bridge.

Based upon its review of the certification request, received on September 16, 2021,, DEQ certifies that if the permittee complies with the terms and conditions imposed by the permit and the conditions set forth in this water quality certification, then it is reasonable for DEQ to conclude that the activity will comply with water quality requirements, including applicable requirements of Sections 301, 302, 303, 306, and 307 of the Clean Water Act, the Idaho Water Quality Standards (IDAPA 58.01.02), and other appropriate water quality requirements of state law.

Written comments will be accepted through October 26, 2021, at 5 p.m. MDT. Submit comments by mail or email to:
