BOISE – The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) will host a public meeting to discuss the proposed city of Boise Idaho Pollution Discharge Elimination System (IPDES) Lander Street Water Renewal Facility Permit (ID0020443) and West Boise Water Renewal Facility Permit (ID002023981).

The meeting is scheduled for 5 pm on April 27, 2022, at the DEQ State Office in Boise, Idaho (1410 N Hilton Street). Interested parties can join the meeting in person or virtually. For more information visit DEQ’s Events page.

The meeting will discuss the proposed discharge permits and combined fact sheet, explain the differences between the 2012 permits and the 2022 proposed permits, accept written public comments, and answer questions from stakeholders on the proposed permit.

The permit authorizes the discharge of treated municipal wastewater to the Boise River for five years. The permit identifies the pollutants of concern and specifies associated discharge limits. Additionally, the permit specifies monitoring and reporting requirements necessary to ensure compliance, protect human health, and assure the integrity of Idaho’s environment.

The public comment period on the proposed IPDES permits opens on March 30, 2022, at which time DEQ will post the documents for public review. Interested parties will have until April 29, 2022, at 5 p.m. MST to submit written comments. For questions about the meeting or permits, contact Lauri Monnot at
