DEQ seeks comment on draft IPDES permit for The Edge Resort

November 23, 2021

GARDEN VALLEY – The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) seeks comment on a draft Idaho Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (IPDES) permit for The Edge Resort.

The resort applied for a wastewater discharge permit for its wastewater treatment facility, located at 851 Banks Lowman Road, Garden Valley, Idaho.

The draft permit would authorize the discharge of treated domestic wastewater year-round to the Middle Fork Payette 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 December 27, 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., Boise, ID), DEQ’s Boise Regional Office (1445 N. Orchard, Boise, ID), and on DEQ’s website. A public meeting may be held, if requested in writing, by December 8, 2021.

Comments and questions regarding this process should be directed to Rakael Pope, on DEQ’s Public Comment Opportunities page. Comments should address water quality considerations and include supporting materials where available. Comments should also reference The Edge Resort and permit number ID0030015.
