State Waste Discharge Permit ST0004511

Ecology is holding a 30-day comment period for the State Waste Discharge Permit ST0004110. We are inviting the public to comment on the draft permit and fact sheet supporting the renewal of State Waste Discharge Permit No. ST0004511 for Hanford Site Miscellaneous Wastewater Discharge Streams. 

This permit consolidates four previous State Waste Discharge Permits into one “Categorical permit” which covers all “miscellaneous streams” across the Hanford Site in areas related to the Department of Energy's (Energy) cleanup mission.

It does not cover leased areas or those managed by other agencies. This permit exists to control the discharge of wastewater streams to land on the Hanford Site and to prohibit practices that could increase, move, or spread existing groundwater contamination.
