Metropolitan Council Wastewater Treatment Plant (Seneca) - Wastewater Permit
We invite you to comment on the draft wastewater permit for the Metropolitan Council Environmental Services - Seneca wastewater treatment plant.
The Met Council - Seneca wastewater treatment facility is located in Eagan, Minnesota. It is the principal sewage treatment facility for residential, commercial, institutional, and industrial wastewater from Bloomington, Burnsville, Eagan, Inver Grove Heights, Lakeville, and portions of Apple Valley, Savage, and Shakopee. It's designed to treat an average of wet weather flow of up to 38 million gallons per day and discharges treated wastewater to the Minnesota River.
The MPCA is reissuing the facility's water quality permit with additional monitoring requirements for several substances including nitrogen, selenium, suspended solids, mercury, magnesium, and sodium. The reissued permit also includes changes to reporting and sampling frequency requirements. No changes to the facility are authorized as part of this permit reissuance.
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.
All fields are optional unless otherwise indicated.
