We invite you to comment on the draft wastewater permit for Aitkin's wastewater treatment plant.
The city of Aitkin applied for reissuance of the water quality permit for its wastewater treatment facility, which discharges to the Mississippi River. The facility is designed to treat an average wet weather flow of 690,000 gallons per day. This permit reissuance changes the monitoring period for chlorine to match the monitoring period for fecal coliform. The pollutant limits in the permit haven't changed, and the permit doesn't authorize any changes or new construction at the facility.
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.
