Idaho Department of Environmental Quality has stopped working on the Dynamis permit–which had been on a fast track application schedule.
DEQ officials say the application is incomplete and cite details in a highly TECHNICAL LETTER to Dynamis which was released today.
The GUARDIAN has also learned the plan called for water supplied by United Water to operate the scrubbers in the emission control stacks as well as that water heated to generate steam. According to the DEQ, the water with concentrated pollution would be collected in tanks and either held in evaporative ponds at the landfill or trucked to a municipal sewage treatment facility.
Boise’s plant would be out of bounds because the city passed an ordinance several years ago banning disposal of waste from outside the city in a city sewage treatment plant.
