TWIN FALLS — The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality is seeking public comment on a draft water-reuse permit renewal for the Amalgamated Sugar Company of Twin Falls. The permit will authorize the company to continue operating a wastewater treatment facility and reuse system for another five years. It will allow recycled water to be used to irrigate agricultural fields and the conditional use of condensate wastewater for dust suppression.
As part of the permitting process, Amalgamated Sugar will have to show how it will address public health and environmental concerns, including methods of preventing surface and ground water contamination.
Written comments on the draft permit will be accepted until 5 p.m. April 18.
The draft permit and staff analysis are available for public review at DEQ’s Twin Falls Regional Office, 650 Addison Ave. W., Suite 110, or at deq.idaho.gov.
