We invite your comments on the modification of the City of Waitsburg NPDES water quality permit (#WA0045551). The permit regulates the discharge of wastewater into the Touchet River via infiltration into contiguous wetlands. The proposed changes are in section S2 and include removing the requirement to install an effluent flow meter and add sampling for the wetland.

We regulate wastewater released from municipalities and industries using the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Wastewater Discharge Permit. This permit regulates wastewater that goes directly into lakes, rivers, or the Puget Sound (surface water). All wastewater must be treated before it goes into surface water to protect human health and aquatic life. Learn more about water quality individual permits.
