Problem: DER allows methods of effluent discharge that may
be inconsistent with WMD policies.
In its regulation of wastewater treatment, DER's concern
for water quality becomes a factor in choosing a disposal
alternative for treated effluent. Presently, DER is
initiating a reuse policy for recovered water.
Discharging water through deep well injection requires a
WMD permit. WMD policies review discharge of water as it
relates to the consumptive use permit of the applicant.
