Below are EPA's 2019 National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) general permits and supporting documents for aquaculture facilities in Idaho (excluding facilities in the Upper Snake-Rock subbasin).
- Permit numbers: IDG131000 & IDG133000
- Effective date: December 1, 2019
- Permits expire: November 30, 2024
Note: When these permits were reissued, EPA separated out discharges from aquaculture facilities located in Indian Country in Idaho under a separate general permit number (IDG133000) from the pre-existing permit number (IDG131000), which now covers only discharges to state waters. This change will facilitate the transfer of IDG131000 to Idaho in 2020 as part of the phased implementation of Idaho’s administration of the NPDES Program. EPA will remain the permitting authority for IDG133000.
For fish processors and facilities discharging within the Upper Snake-Rock subbasin, the 2007 NPDES General Permits for Aquaculture and Associated Fish Processing Facilities in the Upper Snake-Rock are still in effect.
