DEQ seeks comment on draft IPDES permit for city of Richfield wastewater treatment facility

Tuesday, December 15, 2020

RICHFIELD — The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) seeks comment on a draft Idaho Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (IPDES) permit for the city of Richfield Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF).

The city applied for a wastewater discharge permit for its public wastewater treatment facility, located at 1568 East Highway 26 in Richfield, Idaho.

The proposed permit would authorize the discharge of treated municipal wastewater November through April to the Little Wood River for five years. The permit identifies the pollutants of concern and lists 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 14, 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 Twin Falls Regional Office (650 Addison Avenue West, Suite 110), and on DEQ’s website. A public meeting may be held, if requested in writing, by December 29, 2020.

Comments and questions regarding this process should be directed to Karen Jackson or at DEQ’s Public Comments page. Comments should address water quality considerations and include supporting materials where available. Comments should also reference the facility name and permit number (ID0021211).
