Rocky Mount Sewer District sewer extension and Public Comment

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources is placing the Rocky Mount Sewer District Phase III Sewer Extension Variance CWC-V-3-24 on public notice and invites public comment.

The variance, if approved by the Missouri Clean Water Commission, allows the construction of the Rocky Mount Sewer District Phase III Sewer Extension project to proceed without meeting the 50-foot setback from water supply sources or structures as required by 10 CSR 20-8.120(5) and 10 CSR 20-8.125(4)(F) at 24 locations, while still providing adequate, engineered protections.

Based on preliminary staff review and the application of applicable state and federal regulations, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, as administrative agent for the Missouri Clean Water Commission, has found that a variance pursuant to Section 644.061.1, RSMo. is warranted. The department proposes to recommend that the Missouri Clean Water Commission approve the Rocky Mount Sewer District Phase III Sewer Extension Variance CWC-V-3-24. The proposed recommendation is tentative pending public comment.

Comments should be confined to the issues relating to the proposed action and the potential effect on emergency operations and water quality.
