The Administrator has received a complete application to renew a Water Pollution Control Discharge Permit, NEV95016, from Newmont Mining Corporation, 427 Ridge Street, Suite C, Reno, Nevada 89501.

The Applicant proposes to continue to discharge sewage and septage generated by the workforce at the South and North Operations Areas, a maximum of 40,000 gallons per day, to the Mill 5/6 Tailings Storage Facility (TSF), located approximately six miles north of Carlin, Nevada.

Sewage and septage is combined with the Mill 5/6 tailings and the slurry is discharged to the Mill 5/6 TSF. Because the relatively small amount of sewage is thoroughly mixed with tailings and distributed around the Mill 5/6 TSF, there is limited potential for sewage to accumulate in concentrations that could pose a threat to human health. During maintenance and emergencies, the Applicant will be authorized to direct discharge to the Mill 5/6 TSF or to discharge the tailings/sewage slurry to the James Creek TSF for limited periods of time.

On the basis of review of the requirements of the Nevada Revised Statutes and implementing regulations, the Administrator proposes to re-issue a permit to discharge for a five (5) year period, subject to certain effluent limitations.
