Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 P/C/I SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Woodbury, Orange County

Project Description:

The Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has inititiated a modification to the above-referenced State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) permit. This permit currently authorizes the surface discharge of up to 90,000 gallons per day (GPD) of treated sanitary waste to tributary six of the Woodbury Creek, Class C. The modification is initated for the purpose of placing an effluent limit for phosphorus in the permt. The inclusion of this parameter is expected to protect water quality in the receving water. Phosphorus is a nutrient that, when present in excess, can contribute negatively to water quality by encouraging eutrophication that can ultimately lead to reduced oxygen levels and degrade valuable habitat. This modification is undertaken with the intention of protecting the water quality of the receiving water and the Woodbury Creek watershed resource as a whole. Additional information on this permit may be requested from or inspected by appointment at the NYSDEC Central Office in Albany or at the NYSDEC Region 3 Office in New Paltz. Substantive comments must be submitted in writing to the contact person. SPDES #: NY 024 7561

Project is Located:

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 1895, DEC Identification #: 3-3924-00052-00005), the Rockland County Sewer District #1 facility in Rockland County, 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:

Flow permit requirement of 28.9 mgd 12-MRA limit included along with a monthly average cap of 36.1 mgd. Capacity assessment shall include a comparison of each treatment unit to design guidelines in the 10-State Standards. Mass limits for CBOD5 and TSS were rounded to two significant figures in compliance with DEC guidance. An interim limit of 65% removal for CBOD5 and TSS as well as a compliance schedule. Influent monitoring requirement for 7-day CBOD5 and TSS concentrations as well as influent mass loadings have been removed as federal regulations require that influent concentrations be monitored for monthly average percent removal calculations. A Water Quality Based Effluent Limit (WQBEL) of 0.5 mg/l of total residual chlorine was calculated and included in the final limits. An interim limit of 1.0 mg/l is included to allow the permittee time to construct the facilities necessary to meet more stringent standards. Effluent samples will be analyzed using EPA Method 1631. Action levels have been revised to reflect current discharge levels. Effluent limit for: copper has been changed to an action level of 8.1 lbs/day; Lead has been changed to 0.5 lbs/day; and Zinc, has been changed to 23 lbs/day. Compliance schedules were added for: secondary treatment and upgrade, if necessary; Short term high-intensity modeling of nickel, cyanide and toluene; Mercury compliance schedule using EPA Method 1631; Total residual chlorine, WQBEL of 0.5 mg/l;and, stormwater outfall information. Develop and implement a stormwater pollution prevention plan to prevent releases of significant mounts of pollutants to the waters of the state through stormwater discharges. Quarterly toxicity testing for period of 1 year every 5 years.

The modification also includes several other minor reporting modifications. The Rockland County Sewer District #1 facility has surface discharge into the Hudson River, a class S(B) water. DEC seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance.
