Public Notice: Proposed NPDES General Permit for Hydroelectric Generating Facilities in Idaho

Publish Date: 04/27/2018


The EPA is proposing to issue a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) general permit for hydroelectric facilities discharging to waters within Idaho (Permit No. IDG360000).

As proposed, the hydroelectric general permit would protect surface waters from discharges of oil, grease and alterations to pH from facility and equipment outfalls, and minimize the impacts of the cooling water intake structures to fish and aquatic organisms.

Electronic copies of the draft permit and supporting documents are availabe under "Related Documents" below.
