Wyoming wastewater permit up for renewal
After record water flows, Jackson, Wyoming, officials do not expect changes to a 5-year permit due for renewal that allows the town to release treated wastewater into ponds that eventually lead to the Snake River.
The permit allows Jackson to treat and discharge up to 5 million gallons of water per day on average. The town tends to experience an increase in flow around the Fourth of July due to weather, and this year it peaked at 3.5 million gallons.
“That was due to the high runoff we saw in the valley,” wastewater plant manager Johnny Ziem told Jackson Hole News and Guide.
Now that the 5-year permit is due for renewal, officials have had conversations with the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality to increase the discharge limit due to new changes in processing technique that would save energy.
