The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is seeking comment on a draft 401 water quality certification for the Idaho Transportation Department District 2 municipal storm sewer system modification.
The Idaho Transportation Department – District 2 discharges to the Clearwater River – Lower Granite Dam Pool within the Clearwater Subbasin.
Based upon its review of the above-referenced permit and associated fact sheet, DEQ certifies that if the permittee complies with the terms and conditions imposed by the permit along with the conditions set forth in this water quality certification, then it is reasonable for DEQ to conclude that the discharge will comply with the applicable water quality requirements of Sections 301, 302, 303, 306, and 307 of the Clean Water Act, the Idaho Water Quality Standards (WQS) (IDAPA 58.01.02), and other appropriate water quality requirements of state law.
