IDAHO DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY: DEQ seeks comment on draft water reuse permit renewal for city of Kuna

Idaho Department of Environmental Quality issued the following announcement on Jan. 18. 

The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is seeking public comment on a draft water reuse permit renewal for the city of Kuna in Ada County.

The permit authorizes the city to continue operating a wastewater treatment facility and reuse system for another 10 years. It allows recycled water to be used to irrigate fodder crops during the growing season.

As part of the permitting process, the city is required to show how it will address public health and environmental concerns, including methods of preventing surface and ground water contamination.

The draft permit specifies buffer zones around the irrigation site, hydraulic and nutrient loading rates, operating practices, and monitoring requirements established by DEQ to protect public health and the environment.

Written comments on the draft permit will be accepted through February 18, 2019, at 5 p.m. MST.

The draft permit and staff analysis are available for public review at DEQ’s state office and on DEQ’s website (download at right).
