Public Hearing Notice - August 25, 2015
PROPOSAL: Reissue NPDES permit for the Carolina Water Service, Inc., I-20 Wastewater Treatment Plant (0.8 MGD facility) with discharge to the Saluda River, Permit #SC0035564. This would include elimination of the proposed 1.051 MGD permit page and addresses conditions for elimination of the discharge in the future.
ACTION NEEDED: The river community at large needs to show up to encourage DHEC to NOT RESISSUE this permit
