PUBLIC NOTICE CONCERNING KANSAS/FEDERAL WATER POLUTION CONTROL PERMITS AND APPLICATIONS
The enclosed public notice and draft permit pertain to the referenced pending Kansas Water Pollution Control Permit and Authorization to Discharge under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES).
Regulations require this department to issue a public notice to inform interested persons of the agency's intent to issue a Kansas/Federal Water Pollution Control Permit. The notice allows a 30-day period for comment by the applicant or other interested parties. If response to the notice indicates significant interest, a public hearing may be held. Please post the draft permit and the public notice in a conspicuous public place in your place of business (if a private business) or other public building (if a governmental entity) until the Comments Due Date identified in the public notice. Also, please note that if the permit requires routine monitoring and reporting, the table under section A will contain a new term called "EDMR code". This term stands for Electronic Discharge Monitoring Report and is an addition to the permits to allow all permittees, in the future, to receive the discharge monitoring report data electronically instead of on paper. Any comments you have regarding the proposed permit should be sent to this office. If you have any questions, please contact me at (785) 296-6432.
