WYOMING DEPARTMENT OF
PROPOSED DISCHARGE OF DREDGED OR FILL MATERIAL TO YELLOWSTONE LAKE
The Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (WDEQ) has received a request from the National Park Service for State certification of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Nationwide Permit #13, for discharge of dredged or fill material to Yellowstone Lake within Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. The purpose of the project is to undertake shoreline stabilization to protect infrastructure along Peale Island located in the south arm of Yellowstone Lake. All waters within national parks are designated Class 1 waters where point source discharges are prohibited except for storm water and construction related discharges. This certification will require meeting the provisions in Chapter 1, Section 7(b) of the WDEQ Water Quality Rules and Regulations, which allows these discharges under certain circumstances. Proposed activities would result in the permanent placement of approximately 45 cubic yards of fill.
Requests for information about the proposed water quality certification should be directed to Eric Hargett by email (eric.hargett @wyo.gov) or phone (307-777-6701). Written comments must be addressed to Eric Hargett, Wyoming DEQ/WQD, 200 W. 17th Street – 4TH floor, Cheyenne, WY, 82002, and be postmarked on or before 5:00 p.m. on June 24, 2021 to be considered. Electronic comments may only be submitted through and accepted by the Wyoming DEQ comment portal provided at http:// wq.wyomingdeq.commentinput.com/. Phone comments will not be accepted.
