Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Brutus, Cayuga County

Project Description:

The applicant proposes to modify their current SPDES permit by increasing the discharge from 0.3 to 0.55 million gallons per day (MGD) of treated sanitary wastewater to Cold Spring Brook (North Brook), a Class C waterbody, from their existing permitted secondary treatment plant, located at 2601 Earl Street, Weedsport, NY. The Department has made a tentative determination to issue a modified permit for a State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) permit under Article 17 of the Environmental Conservation Law. This tentative determination indicates that the discharge regulated under this statute is considered to satisfy regulatory standards for permit issuance, based on information available to the Department at this time. As a tentative determination, the Department seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance. As such, this tentative determination does not signify department approval for or endorsement of the activity for which a permit modification is sought or for the overall proposed project. A draft SPDES permit is available for review, along with the application and other associated materials, at the Departments Region 7 Syracuse Office. Refer to this application by DEC number listed above and SPDES number: NY 002 0559.
