We invite you to comment on draft NPDES Water Quality Permit WA0040819.
The draft permit we proposed to issue to Riverence LLC authorizes the discharge of treated wastewater to the Black River in Rochester, WA.
You may view the draft document at Riverence LLC 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.
