USD’s Groundwater Program
All reasonable alternatives to sewer disposal, such as legally permissible reuses, must be explored before discharge will be approved. When no other alternative for disposal of groundwater exists, USD may issue discharge permits for:
- Groundwater from site remediation projects
- Groundwater encountered during excavation
This Permit is a conditional Discharge Permit and approval of discharge is dependent upon available capacity in the sewer.
