PUBLIC NOTICE
Lower Virgin River-Total Maximum Daily Load Allocation for Boron
Pursuant to Section 303(d) of the Clean Water Act, the State of Nevada is required to develop a list of impaired waterbodies that need additional work beyond existing controls to achieve or maintain water quality standards. The lower Virgin River from the Nevada-Arizona state line to Lake Mead is currently listed on Nevada's 1998 303(d) List for exceedences of the boron and total phosphorus water quality standards. These exceedences typically occur during periods of low flow.

In an effort to achieve and maintain the existing water quality standard for boron in the Lower Virgin River, the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection, Bureau of Water Quality Planning has developed a graduated Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) allocation for boron, based on water flow, effective at the Nevada-Arizona state line. The Division is issuing this Public Notice and soliciting public comment on the boron TMDL prior to its final issuance and implementation. Support documentation and rationale used in the determination of the boron TMDL has been incorporated into the document entitled:

"Lower Virgin River-Boron Total Maximum Daily Loads" -- 38 Pages -- 1.6KB Adobe PDF File

Written public comments should be submitted by 5:00 p.m. Monday, April 15, 2002. Questions or comments should be directed to:

The Administrator of the Division of Environmental Protection gives notice that a public hearing regarding the proposed modification of National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permit NV0023027 for a concentrated animal feeding operation, the Ponderosa Dairy, has been scheduled for 6:00 P.M. January 29, 2002 at the Amargosa Valley Multipurpose Building, 821 E. Amargosa Farm Road, Amargosa Valley, Nevada.

Public notice for the draft permit was given November 7, 2001 in the Las Vegas Review-Journal and the Pahrump Valley Times. The Administrator has determined that there is sufficient public interest in this draft permit to warrant a public hearing.

The Applicant for the modification of NPDES Permit NV0023027 is Rockview Farms, Inc., 7011 Stewart and Gray Road, Downey, CA 90241-4347.

The facility is located in Nye County, Nevada and is in portions of Sections 9, 10, and 15, Township 17 S, Range 49 E, in the town of Amargosa Valley, 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.

Comments and information submitted to the Division, other than those to be presented at the hearing, must be received by 5:00 P.M. January 30, 2002. Please submit to Bruce Holmgren

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.
