We invite you to comment on the draft permit for the Loretto Wastewater Treatment Facility located in Hennepin County.
The City of Loretto owns and operates a wastewater treatment plant that indirectly discharges into Lake Independence. The facility uses a waste stabilization pond to reduce organic waste and remove pathogens from wastewater before sending the water to the Met Council's Blue Lake wastewater treatment plant in Shakopee.
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.
All fields are optional unless otherwise indicated.
