The Nebraska Department of Environment and Energy (NDEE) proposes to reissue, with change, the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit for the City of Beatrice Wastewater Treatment Facility, 1301 Beaver Avenue, Beatrice, NE (NPDES# NE0020915; SIC 4952). The publicly owned treatment works receives and treats domestic and process industrial wastewater which discharges from a mechanical treatment system through Outfall 001 to the Big Blue River, Segment BB1-10000 in the Big Blue River Basin. The discharge of treated domestic wastewater through Outfall 002 is through land application at the Beatrice Country Club. The permit would be issued for a period of up to five years and would restrict pollutant discharges to comply with the requirements of Department regulations. The draft permit, fact sheet, and other public information are available for review and copying at NDEE’s Lincoln Office, 245 Fallbrook Boulevard, Suite 100, Lincoln, Nebraska 68521 between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. (CT), weekdays, excluding holidays.
