STATE OF WYOMING PUBLIC NOTICE

 

Purpose of Public Notice

 

Operators of the facilities listed below have applied to the Department of Environmental Quality/Water Quality Division (DEQ/WQD) for permits to discharge wastewater into streams or other surface waters. After reviewing the applications and other information, the DEQ/WQD staff has determined that these discharges should be permitted. The proposed permits contain limitations and conditions that will assure that the state's surface water quality will be protected and fulfill the requirements of Sections 402 and 303 of the federal Clean Water Act.

 

The purpose of this notice is to invite your comments on these proposed permits before they are issued. Questions regarding any of the proposed permits may be directed to Leah Coleman (307-777-7093). Copies of the proposed permits will be available on our website at http://deq.state.wy.us. To object to any of the proposed permits, submit your comments in writing to Leah Coleman, DEQ/WQD, 200 West 17th Street, Cheyenne, WY 82002 by the date shown below. If no objection to a permit is received by the date shown below, the permit will be issued as proposed. Upon request, a copy of the draft permit, fact sheet, and other pertinent information is available at the address listed above. A complete copy of the permit file for all permits, including coal bed methane permits, will be retained in the DEQ Cheyenne Field Office. Each permit file contains the proposed permit, application form, fact sheet, and other pertinent information.

 

Any interested person may submit written comments on a proposed permit and may request a public meeting. A request for a public meeting shall be in writing and shall indicate the interest of the party and the reasons why a meeting is warranted. If the administrator finds that there is a significant degree of public interest he may facilitate such a public meeting. The DEQ/WQD will consider all comments when making the final decision of issuance or denial of the permit and this decision is appealable to the Wyoming Environmental Quality Council (EQC). All comments must be received in writing or fax copies of written comments by 5:00 pm on the date listed below. Comments received by email will not be accepted.
