Draft CPP available for comments. The Bureau of Water Quality Planning is seeking public comments on the draft Continuing Planning Process (CPP) document. The CPP defines how NDEP is implementing Clean Water Act (CWA) programs addressing the water quality of surface waters and is a compendium of procedures for planning and implementing water quality management programs. Comments are being accepted until March 4, 2002.

Draft 2002 303(d) Listing methodology available for comments. Comments on the Draft 2002 303(d) Listing methodology are being sought by the Bureau of Water Quality Planning. Section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act requires that States develop a list of waterbodies needing additional work beyond existing controls to achieve or maintain water quality standards. The 303(d) List is the basis for targeting water bodies for watershed?based solutions, and the Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) process provides an organized framework to develop these solutions. Comments are being accepted until March 4, 2002.

Data Solicitation for 2002 303(d) List development. In support of the 2002 303(d), the Bureau of Water Quality Planning is also soliciting the public for data and information pertaining to the water quality conditions of surface waters in Nevada. BWQP staff will evaluate all data and information submissions on a case by case basis to determine whether the information are applicable and useful for identifying impaired waterbodies as required by CWA. All submittals will be accepted until April 1, 2002.

The Administrator has received a complete application to renew National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit NV0022675 from Barrick Goldstrike Mines Inc., P.O. Box 29, Elko, Nevada 89803.

The Applicant proposes to continue authorization to discharge treated groundwater withdrawn from mine dewatering wells to the Humboldt River via pipelines, lined canals, Whitehouse Ditch, and Rock Creek at a maximum rate of 110.0 million gallons per day (MGD) and a maximum thirty-day average of 100.8 MGD. The primary discharge point to the Humboldt River is located in Eureka County, approximately three miles west of Dunphy, Nevada. This discharge consists of groundwater that, after treatment to reduce the total dissolved solids, boron and fluoride concentrations and temperature, meets all appropriate Humboldt River drinking water, aquatic life and irrigation standards. Monitoring will continue to be required to ensure that the water in the Humboldt River is not degraded by this discharge. The Applicant has not discharged to the Humboldt under this permit since February 1999. The proposed permit will cover a five (5) year period.

Please submit all comments to Bruce Holmgren by 5:00 pm on December 21, 2001.

The Administrator has received a complete application for a major modification of National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit from Rockview Farms, Inc., 7011 Stewart & Gray Road, Downey, CA 90241.

The Permittee’s Ponderosa Dairy is located in the Amargosa Valley, Nye County, Nevada. Ponderosa is operated as Dairy 1 and Dairy 2 with Dairy 3 to be added as part of this major modification. Dairy 3 will increase the number of Ponderosa cows and calves by approximately 68%. Dairies 1 and 2 are approximately equal in size in terms of the number of cows housed and acres for confined feeding with a total area of 80 acres. Dairy #3 will add 60 acres to the confinement area.

Dairy 1 has an earthen lined pond system that consists of two lagoons and eight ponds. Dairy 2 has an earthen lined pond system that consists of three lagoons. The maximum 30-day average discharge to the two pond systems is 350,000 gallons per day (GPD). Dairy 3 is being designed to accommodate a maximum 30-day average discharge of 275,000 GPD.

The Permittee uses a combination of evaporation and land application/reuse to dispose the liquid manure generated by the existing dairy facilities and has proposed similar utilization at Dairy 3. To reduce the nitrogen loading on the reuse fields, the ponds are aerated. To ensure that groundwater is not degraded, the Permittee is being given the option of lining the lagoons and ponds or installing monitoring wells at each pond system. The Permittee is allowed to discharge to surface waters, the Amargosa River, only during storms that exceed the 24-hour, 25-year storm event or as a result of a series of chronic rainfall events.

The Administrator has determined to issue NPDES permit NV0023051 to the Stateline Stormwater Association for operation of an existing stormwater treatment and disposal system designed to minimize discharge of pollutants associated with urban runoff to Lake Tahoe. Typical pollutants include nitrogen, phosphorus, petroleum, sediment, and metals.

The Association consists of Caesar's, Harrah's, Harvey's, Horizon, Wells Fargo Bank, Park Cattle Company, Douglas County, and the Nevada Department of Transportation; and was created by the state legislature for the purpose of constructing, operating, and maintaining the stormwater system. With this system, pretreated stormwater from individual properties is collected and treated by physical separation processes prior to discharge to the Edgewood Golf Course irrigation pond system. Discharges to groundwater also occur, and creek flow through the pond system results in some discharge to Lake Tahoe. Discharge monitoring is intended to provide estimates of the pollutant loading to Lake Tahoe and help guide improvements to operations.
