The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region 7 (EPA) will hold a Public Hearing on Feb. 18, 2020, to allow interested persons to submit oral or written comments and data regarding EPA’s Specific Objection to the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) proposed National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit for the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kansas Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plant No. 1 (Kaw Point) Treatment Facility.
On March 4, 2011, EPA issued a Specific Objection on the Kaw Point permit. Following EPA’s objection, KDHE and the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kansas, worked together to address the issues raised in the objection. KDHE is developing a draft permit for the facility that it believes addresses EPA’s objection. EPA will consider the revised draft permit and any other information submitted during the hearing process to determine whether the issues raised in the objection have been adequately resolved.You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page.
