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 002-6956, DEC Identification #: 7-2512-00012/00001-0), the City of Oneida Sewage Treatment Plant 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 concentration based effluent limit for UOD during the summer has been reduced, from 35 mg/l to 31.7 mg/l. The phosphorous limit has also been reduced, from 1.0 mg/l to 0.6 mg/l (beginning in 2008). The chlorine limit was reduced, from 0.15 mg/l to 0.1 mg/l. The limit for Ammonia during the summer was reduced, from 4.7 mg/l to 3.5 mg/l and during the winter the limit was lowered from 10 mg/l to 7.4 mg/l.

There will also be a minimum dissolved oxygen requirement of 7.0 mg/l beginning in 2008. The concentration based limits for CBOD and TSS remain the same. Limits (in lbs/day) for the above parameters have been increased accordingly to reflect the new design flow (2.5 mgd to 3.75 mgd).
