Description Pomeroy, a small town in Garfield County, is required by their National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit to maintain a minimum level of dissolved oxygen in their wastewater discharge. Unfortunately, the effluent dissolved-oxygen concentration was consistently lower than the permit limit. After reviewing the situation, an Ecology staffperson and the treatment plant operator came up with a cheap and reliable fix to the problem.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
