Monday, August 31, 2020

MOSCOW — The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) seeks comment on the proposed termination of the University of Idaho’s (U of I) Aquaculture Research Laboratory’s Idaho Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (IPDES) permit (ID0027154).

The U of I submitted a notice of intent to terminate discharge on June 30, 2020, for the Aquaculture Laboratory located at 1108 West Sixth St., Moscow, Idaho. The proposed permit termination acknowledges the removal of wastewater discharge to Paradise Creek and the rerouting to the U of I reuse facility.  

Written comments on the proposed permit termination will be accepted through September 28th, 2020, at 5 p.m. MST. The current permit and fact sheet are available for public review at DEQ’s state office (1410 N. Hilton St.), DEQ’s Lewiston Regional Office (1118 F St., Lewiston), and on DEQ’s website. A public meeting may be held, if requested in writing, by September 14th, 2020.

Comments and questions regarding this process should be directed to Jonathan Drygas. Comments should address water quality considerations, include supporting materials where available, and reference the U of I Aquaculture Research Laboratory and permit number (ID0027154).
