Brownsville Wastewater Treatment Plant - Wastewater Permit

We invite you to comment on the draft permit for the Brownsville Wastewater Treatment Facility located in Houston County.

The Brownsville Wastewater Treatment Facility has a continuous discharge to the Mississippi River and is designed to treat an influent flow of approximately 0.049 million gallons per day average dry weather flow; 0.055 million gallons per day average wet weather flow; and approximately 130 pounds of total suspended solids per day prior to discharge into the Mississippi River.

Water quality permits - or National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits - establish specific limits and requirements to protect Minnesota's surface and groundwater quality. Permits are regularly reviewed and updated as they expire, allowing the MPCA to incorporate new information about the impacts of pollutants on the environment in future permits. Permits are enforced through a combination of self-reporting and compliance monitoring.
