We invite your comments on the proposed modification of permit no. WA0002470
The proposed modification is to allow a stepwise flow increase, over a minimum of a four month period, of process wastewater to the City of Lynden Wastewater Treatment Plant.
You may view the draft permit, fact sheet addendum and related documents at Darigold Lynden Plant or visit the Water Quality Permitting and Reporting Information System (PARIS) website.
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, Puget Sound, or the ocean (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.
