Hearing Examiner: Boal
Summary: This is an appeal from the issuance of WYPDES Permit NO. WY0054364 issued to Pennaco Energy, Inc. by the Director of the DEQ (WQD).The Permit authorizes Pennaco to discharge water from a treatment unit or units into Prairie Dog Creek and Wildcat Creek in Sheridan County, WY. The source of the water influent into the treatment unit is coalbed methane wells. Water discharged under the Permit could co-mingle with water in Prairie Dog Creek that is the source of irrigation water for those shareholders who make their diversions from Prairie Dog Creek at locations downstream of Outfall 003. The permit allows discharges of treated water to alter the EC, SAR and sodium concentrations in Prairie Dog Creek to levels that the DEQ has determined are likely to result in measurable decrease in production of irrigated crops.
