Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Poland, Chautauqua 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 002-7570, DEC Identification #: 9-0656-00024-00002), the Jamestown Wastewater Treatment Plant, (T) Poland, (C) Chautauqua, 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:

The Jamestown Wastewater Treatment Plant must upgrade its treatment facilities to address deteriorating Rotating Biological Contactor (RBC) units in it's treatment system. This will include construction of a new plastic media trickling filter and retirement of the existing stone media trickling filter as well as retirement of the RBC units. In the interim, effluent limits for Ultimate Oxygen Demand (UOD) must be relaxed during construction. This department initiated modification establishes effluent limits for UOD and compliance schedules for the construction period, 2007 - 2008. This permit also establishes more stringent effluent limitations for the parameter Total Residual Chlorine, and includes a schedule of compliance to attain that more stringent effluent limit."

The modification also includes several other minor reporting modifications. The Jamestown Wastewater Treatment Plant has surface discharge into Cassadaga Creek, a class C water. NYSDEC seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance.

Niagara County

Applicant:

City of North Tonawanda
City Hall
North Tonawanda, NY 14120

Facility:

Briarwood Estates Subdivision
Between East Goundry St & Wright Ave
North Tonawanda, NY 14120

Application ID:

9-2912-00203/00003

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

North Tonawanda, Niagara County

Project Description:

The project consists of the development of 23 homes as a continuation of the existing Briarwood Estates Subdivision, with construction of a road and infrastructure improvements. The regulated project activity will consist of a 24 inch diameter HDPE stormwater pipe, approximately 1,160 feet long within a 70 foot wide right-of-way that will extend from the proposed development through a state regulated wetland, identified as TE-36, to follow Wright Avenue to its intersection with South Meadow Drive. Rather than constructing a ditch to convey the subdivision's stormwater, the water will be piped through the wetland in order to prevent wetland dewatering. The piped water will discharge to a stormwater detention and siltation basin, 30 feet wide by 100 feet in length to be constructed near South Meadow Drive. The basin will discharge to an existing 12 inch diameter stormwater pipe at that location. The stormwater detention and siltation basin will be fenced for the purpose of public safety. A wet meadow wetland seed mixture will be used around the detention and siltation basing to provide mitigation for the minimal wetland impact associated with the pipe installation and basin construction. The originally proposed 38 home subdivision was reduced to 23 homes due to the Department's wetland mapping revisions.
