DEQ PUBLIC NOTICE: Wastewater Discharge in Fremont River.
DEQ PUBLIC NOTICE: Wastewater Discharge in Fremont River. In order to prevent the failure of wastewater lagoon embankments due to flooding in Hanksville, UT, diluted municipal wastewater is currently being discharged into the Fremont River by the city. Users are advised to avoid contact with the river or use of river water until further notice. We are working with the city and Central Utah Public HD to conduct pumping to minimize the environmental and public health impact of the discharge. We will provide notice when discharge is complete.
