Non-contact cooling tower blowdown is discharged through Outfall 002 and Outfall 003 to Fish Creek, an undesignated tributary to the Missouri River, Segment MT1-10000 in the Missouri Tributaries River Basin via a storm sewer with a settling pond. 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.
