Article 15 Title 5 Stream Disturbance
Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 P/C/I SPDES- Groundwater Discharge

Project is Located:

Hamptonburgh, Orange County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a Draft SPDES Permit (#NY-072 2566) and has made a tentative determination to approve a SPDES permit for the discharge of up to 18,000 gallons per day (gpd) of treated sanitary wastes to the Wallkill River (Class B). The treated sanitary wastes would come from a proposed three-warehouse complex known as "Hudson Crossings" which would consist of a combined total of 1.2 Million Square Feet (MSF) of floor space.

The construction of the SPDES outfall on the banks of the Wallkill River involves the installation of a buried pipe and a stone rip-rap pad to protect the outfall from erosion by the waters of the Wallkill River. The applicant is also seeking the transfer of a separate Freshwater Wetlands permit obtained by the prior owner in 2006 for the disturbance of a State regulated freshwater wetland in order to construct an access road into the site.

The proposed warehouse complex would be located on a 136-acre parcel of land off Neelytown Road, just east of County Road 416, in the Town of Hamptonburgh, Orange County, NY.

Application ID:

3-3348-00206/00002

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

New Windsor, Orange County

Project Description:

DEC proposes to issue an industrial SPDES permit to the above reference facility for the discharge of treated stormwater to the Hudson River. The facility is currently a DEC-permitted solid waste management facility. The subject SPDES permit would authorize discharge of storm water as needed from stormwater containment areas to a subsurface oil and water separator that empties into an on-site stormwater detention basin. The stormwater detention basin drains to a piped storm sewer that runs along NYS Route 980 and discharges ultimately to the Hudson River via on open ditch channel. The SPDES permit includes requirements to develop and incorporate a Best Management Practices (BMP) plan to prevent, or minimize the potential for, release of significant amounts of pollutants to the waters of the State through plant site runoff; spillage and leaks; sludge or waste disposal; and storm water discharges including, but not limited to, drainage from raw material storage. SPDES Number NY 027 2582

Availability of Application Documents:

Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Southeast, Putnam 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 (NY007-5078, DEC Identification #: 3-3730-00061-00001), the Brewster Yard 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:

A section containing Special Conditions - Industry Best Management Practices has been added which requires the permittee to develop, implement and maintain a Best Management Practices Plan. Outfalls 05A, 05B, and 006 have been removed because the groundwater remediation systems associated with these discharges have been discontinued. Outfall 004 has been removed. An oil/water separator treats the site stormwater discharging through Outfall 005. The existing benzene action level of 18 ug/l at Outfall 005 has been revised to a discharge limit of 15 ug/l. Monitoring for settleable solids at Outfall 005 has been revised to once per month. The existing mercury limit has been removed and the permit will require a short term monitoring program for low level mercury testing. The requirements for discharge of hydrostatic tank test waters has been removed as the facility has stated use of double walled tank systems and does not conduct hydrostatic tank testing.

The modification also includes several other minor reporting modifications. The Brewster Yard facillity has surface discharge into a tributary to Tonetta Brook, a Class C water. DEC seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance.
