Drinking water projects which generate new or alter existing waste streams must have a waste stream disposal review completed and a consensus reached regarding waste stream disposal. The Waste Stream Summary Review and Disposal Method Consensus Process is coordinated by KDHE through the Chief of the Engineering and Permits Unit. This process must be completed and a consensus regarding waste stream disposal reached prior to the development of reports, memorandums, project design, or submittal of project plans and specifications so that the consensus on waste disposal can be incorporated in the project's documentation early on. In addition, waste disposal costs can be a significant percentage of the total project cost so it is important to have these costs included early on when evaluating options.
Please email Dan Clair, Chief, Engineering and Permits Unit, or call at 785-296-5516 for questions about the process, or to initiate a waste stream summary review.
