Public Notice: Proposed Wastewater Permit for PotlatchDeltic in St. Maries, Idaho
EPA is proposing to reissue a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) wastewater permit to PotlatchDeltic Land and Lumber on the Coeur d’Alene Reservation in St. Maries, Idaho.
The most recent NPDES permit for the facility was issued in 1996.
PotlatchDeltic Land and Lumber owns and operates the facility which consists of a lumber mill, plywood plant, power plant, wet and dry log storage yards, and a woody debris storage area.
The Region 10 office of the EPA has tentatively determined to reissue a discharge permit to the applicant.
Water Quality Certification
EPA is requesting that the Coeur d’Alene Tribe certify the discharge from outfall 001 to the St. Joe River under Section 401 of the Clean Water Act. Comments regarding the certification should be directed to:
Coeur d’Alene Tribe
Lake Management Department
850 A Street, P.O. Box 408
Plummer, Idaho 83851
Since outfalls 002, 003, and 004 discharge to tribal waters for which the Tribe does not have Treatment as State (TAS), EPA is the certifying authority for the permit. Comments regarding the intent to certify should be directed to Brian Nickel (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Electronic copies of the draft permit and technical fact sheet are available below:
- Draft NPDES Permit, PotlatchDeltic St. Maries, Idaho, #ID0000019 (pdf)

Because of COVID-19 response, there is no public access to the Region 10 EPA building at this time. Therefore, we cannot make hard copies available for viewing at our offices.
