Description of Petition: This Petition is an amendment to the regulations governing the use of treated effluent; NAC 445A. 275 - 280. Specific amendments include restructuring the titling of the effluent categories, adding additional uses of treated effluent beyond irrigation, adding some definitions, and modifying the aerosol control regulation. This regulatory amendment is needed to allow a wider use of treated effluent in the environment. Over the past decade the quality of treated effluent has significantly improved. The higher quality of effluent now allows increased uses of treated effluent for a variety of applications including cooling water, water features, street washing, etc. In addition, the demand for the use of treated effluent has increased over the last ten years as the State's urban areas continue to grow and water supplies become consumed. To allow for new applications of treated effluent, the above referenced regulations must be amended.
