The Administrator has received a complete renewal application for water pollution control discharge permit NEV95017 from Kal Kan Foods, Inc., 500 Waltham Way, McCarran, Nevada 89434.

The applicant is a manufacturer of dry pet food. The applicant has applied for a permit to discharge disinfected, secondary treated wastewater to the groundwater of the State. The applicant proposes to continue to treat up to 5,000 gallons per day (gpd) sanitary waste with up to 20,000 gpd industrial wastewater in a single tank Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) treatment plant. The SBR will produce an effluent with a 5-day biochemical oxygen demand of less than 30 mg/L, a total nitrogen concentration of less than 10 mg/L, and a total suspended solids concentration of less than 30 mg/L. After disinfection, the effluent will have a fecal coliform concentration of less than 23 colony forming units per 100 milliliters. The plant has three points of discharge to the HDPE-lined effluent holding pond, to landscape irrigation, and to the HDPE-lined effluent evaporation pond. Groundwater monitoring wells will be monitored to ensure that there is no degradation of groundwater.
