Hampton Wastewater Treatment Facility - Wastewater Permit

We invite you to comment on the draft wastewater permit for the Hampton wastewater treatment facility and modification of the Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) wasteload allocation.

This is a permit reissuance for the wastewater treatment facility owned and operated by the city of Hampton which discharges treated wastewater to a ditch near the facility.

This action also modifies the Lower Vermillion River Watershed Turbidity TMDL, which mistakenly did not assign a wasteload allocation for this facility. Limits in the draft permit will ensure the proposed wasteload allocation expansion does not have reasonable potential to contribute to exceeding applicable water quality standards.

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.
