Posted: 01/10/2011

DES MOINES - A public hearing regarding the proposed reissuance of a permit allowing the Iowa State University power plant to discharge non-contact cooling water into unnamed tributaries to College Creek will be held Feb. 17 at 6:30 p.m. in Room 250 of the Town Engineering Building on the ISU campus in Ames.

The purpose of the hearing is to accept comments on whether the facility's National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit should be reissued, denied, or reissued with requirements different from those proposed. DNR staff will not respond to questions or comments or debate issues at the hearing, but will prepare written responses to questions and comments when a final determination on the permit is made.

The proposed permit, permit application and other relevant documents are available for public inspection at the Wallace Building, 502 E 9th St., Des Moines, IA 50319.
