DEQ seeks comment on draft IPDES permit for the Idaho Wildlife and Water Quality Group Mason Creek Activated Wetland Pilot Project

Accepting comments from September 12, 2021, through October 13, 2021.

BOISE – The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) seeks comment on a draft Idaho Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (IPDES) permit for the Mason Creek Activated Wetland Pilot Project.

The Idaho Wildlife and Water Quality Group applied for a wastewater discharge permit for its wastewater treatment facility, located at 1904 Mason Creek Road in Caldwell, Idaho.

The proposed permit would authorize the discharge of treated industrial wastewater January 1 to December 31 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 Wednesday, October 13, 2021, at 5 p.m. MDT. The draft permit and fact sheet are available for public review at DEQ’s state office (1410 N. Hilton St.), DEQ’s Boise Regional Office (1445 N. Orchard, Boise, Idaho), and on DEQ’s website. A public meeting may be held, if requested in writing, by September 21, 2021.

Comments and questions regarding this process should be directed to Rakael Pope, or at on DEQ’s Public Comment Opportunities page. Comments should address water quality considerations and include supporting materials where available. Comments should also reference the Mason Creek Activated Wetland Pilot Project and permit number ID0030031.
