Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface

Project is Located:

Wawarsing, Ulster County

Project Description:

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) is pursuing a Department Initiated Modification (DIM) to the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit (NY 003-4002, DEC Identification #: 3-5156-00024-00002), the Village of Ellenville STP Facility pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 750-1.18, New York State's Environmental Benefit Permit Strategy (EBPS). The changes to the permit are as follows:

Mass limits for CBOD5, UOD and TSS were rounded to 2 significant figures in compliance with NYSDEC guidance.

Copper has been changed from an action level of 1.5 lbs/day to a new more stringent water quality limit of 0.7 lbs/day. The limited parameter for cyanide, amenable to chlorination found in the old permit has been changed to free cyanide and has also been changed from a limit of 0.4 lbs/day to a new more stringent water quality limit of 0.16 lbs/day.

The current permit contains a water quality based effluent limit for chromium, of 6.0 lbs/day. The water quality standard for chromium has been revised upward since that water quality limit was calculated. Calculation of the current water quality limit resulted in a value of 13.3 lbs/day. The permittee discharges less than 6.0 lbs/day. Thus, the draft permit continues to monitor the discharge of chromium as an action level of 6.0 lbs/day. The action level for zinc has changed from 9.4 lbs/day to 3.0 lbs/day.

EPA Method 1631, has now been approved by EPA and is required in the compliance schedule of this draft permit. In addition, the Dental Amalgam Rule was recently passed, that requires dentists to capture and recycle mercury used in amalgam (for fillings). The equipment used to capture the mercury containing material must be installed within two years and notification sent to their local wastewater treatment plant.

The modification also includes several other minor reporting modifications. The Village of Ellenville STP has surface discharge into Sandburg Creek, a class B(T) water. NYSDEC seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance.
