DEQ seeks comment on draft IPDES permit for the city of Moyie Springs

Accepting comments from January 6, 2022 to February 7, 2022.

MOYIE SPRINGS – The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) seeks comment on a draft Idaho Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (IPDES) permit for the city of Moyie Springs Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTW).

The city applied for a wastewater discharge permit for its wastewater treatment facility, located in Moyie Springs, Idaho. The proposed permit would authorize the discharge of treated municipal wastewater year-round to the Kootenai River for five years. The permit identifies the pollutants of concern and 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 February 7, 2022, 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. 83706), DEQ’s Coeur d’Alene Regional Office (2110 Ironwood Parkway Coeur d’Alene, ID 83814), and on DEQ’s website. A public meeting may be held, if requested in writing, by January 20, 2022.

Comments and questions regarding this process should be directed to Matt Stutzman, or on DEQ’s Public Comment Opportunities page. Comments should address water quality considerations and include supporting materials where available. Comments should also reference the city of Moyie Springs POTW and permit number (ID0030040).
