Wendell Wastewater Treatment Facility - Wastewater Permit

We invite you to comment on the draft wastewater permit for the City of Wendell's wastewater treatment plant.

The city is applying for a wastewater pond general permit renewal. General permits cover multiple entities with similar operations and types of discharges. The wastewater treatment facility releases treated wastewater into the Mustinka River. It is designed to treat an annual average wet weather flow of 19,500 gallons per day.

Water quality permits - or National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits - establish specific limits and requirements to protect Minnesota's surface and groundwater quality. Permits are regularly reviewed and updated as they expire, allowing the MPCA to incorporate new information about the impacts of pollutants on the environment in future permits. Permits are enforced through a combination of self-reporting and compliance monitoring.
