Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 127 -This act would allow qualifying, small, wastewater treatment facility projects to be constructed without Department of Natural Resources (DNR) engineering review and completed prior to obtaining permit approval.

Projects using any system design or experimental or non- conforming process may be tested by a community college with a program of training in plant operations for wastewater treatment for feasibility. If approved as feasible by the community college, the DNR shall provide a conditional permit to an entity which qualifies as a continuing authority to allow construction, installation and up to one year of operation of such facility if designed primarily to treat domestic waste, and the DNR may require a performance bond not to exceed the cost of construction and installation of the facility, and the Clean Water Commission may include conditions in the permit which are needed in order to ensure compliance with Chapter 644, RSMo. After the facility operates in compliance with discharge requirements for 90 days, the DNR shall grant applicable permanent water pollution permits for the facility.
