ENB Region 3 Completed Applications 11/28/2007

Dutchess County

Applicant:

Richard Ryan

Facility:

Ryan's Gravel Bank
St Rte 82 - W Side - S of Barmore Rd
Billings, NY 12510

Application ID:

3-1334-00038/00005

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

La Grange, Dutchess County


Project Description:

The applicant proposes to expand an existing 18-acre sand and gravel mine by approximately 9 acres. The site is located at the west end of Ryandale Drive, approximately 400 feet west of its intersection with NYS Route 82. According to the application, the proposed expansion involves extension of the southern mine limits about 750 feet to the south and enlargement of the already-approved 8.3-acre pond to about 14.7 acres. In addition, mining is proposed within about 2.7 acres of the northern property limits to create a new pond, a portion of which will be located within the 100-foot adjacent area of State-designated Freshwater Wetland PV-25 (ClassII). The southern pond is proposed to be mined under dry conditions, which will require dewatering of the southern pond during mining. The proposed dewatering discharge would be directed to a class C(ts) stream running along the east side of the property and will require an individual Industrial State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit. The Department has made tentative determination to approve the SPDES permit and a draft permit has been prepared and is available for review by appointment at the DEC Region 3 Office.

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Fallsburgh, Sullivan County


Project Description:

DEC has tentatively determined to issue a State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) permit to the Village of Woodridge for a new wastewater treatment plant (WWTP.) The Village operates an existing wastewater treatment facility (SPDES NY 002 3493) with an outfall discharging 790,000 gallons per day (GPD) to the Neversink River. The new WWTP (SPDES NY 027 2718) will replace the existing WWTP when it is constructed and will be designed to discharge 900,000 GPD to nearby Sandburg Creek [WIN H-139-14-38, Class B(T)], a tributary of Silver Lake. The new receiving water requires trout/intermittent stream effluent limits. This fact sheet describes the basis for limits for this new permit:

Permit Limits, Levels and Monitoring - Interim Limits - An interim limits page has been included in the permit. Interim limits have been applied to the permit for the first three months of operations to allow for "de-bugging" of the new facility. Secondary treatment limits for BOD5 and TSS have been added to the permit. The pH shall be maintained between 6.5-8.5, as required for intermittent streams in accordance with CFR 703.3. The limits for fecal coliform will be 200/400 No./100ml. All other parameters are monitor only.

Final Limits -
BOD5 - A water quality (WQ) limit of 5.0 mg/l BOD5 is required for intermittent streams in accordance with DEC guidance TOGS 1.3.1.B and has been applied to the final permit limits.

TSS
- A WQ limit of 10 mg/l TSS is required for intermittent streams in accordance with DEC guidance TOGS 1.3.1.B and has been applied to the final permit limits.

Settleable Solids
(SS) - According to TOGS 1.3.3 a technology limit of 0.1 ml/l SS is required for activated sludge facilities with tertiary treatment. This final limit has been applied to the new permit.

Ammonia
- Seasonal WQ limits of 1.1 mg/l in summer and 2.2 mg/l in winter for ammonia have been developed for intermittent streams in accordance with TOGS 1.3.1 and 1.3.1.B and have been applied to the final permit limits.

Phosphorus
- A limit of 0.5 mg/l phosphorus has been applied to the final permit in accordance with TOGS 1.3.6.

Dissolved Oxygen
- A WQ limit of >7.0 mg/l dissolved oxygen is required for intermittent streams and has been applied to the final permit in accordance with TOGS 1.3.1.

Temperature
- A WQ limit of 70 oF maximum has been applied to the final permit in accordance with CFR 704.2(2)(i).

pH-
The pH shall be maintained between 6.5-8.5. This is a WQ limit required for intermittent streams and has been applied to the final permit in accordance with CFR 703.3.

Footnotes-
Footnotes for the start-up of the new facility have been included in the interim and final limits pages of the permit. The interim limits will become effective upon submittal of notice of completion of construction by the Village to DEC. Said notice shall include a start date to be approved by DEC. Final effluent limits will become effective three months after the DEC approval of start date.
A footnote for the temperature action level has been included in the final limits page.

Compliance Schedule -
A compliance schedule has been added to the permit requiring the permittee to complete one sampling event for 126 priority pollutants every three months after the approved start date for the new facility. The first results of this sampling will be submitted to DEC for review no later than four months following the approved start date. This sampling data will indicate the presence of any parameters of concern in the new treatment plant effluent (under normal operations) that may need to be addressed in the permit. DEC will review sampling results and determine if modifications to the permit are required to protect water quality.

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 014 5505, DEC Identification #: 3-4832-00020-00003), the Tennanah Lake Townhouse and Villas 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:

Outfall Information
- The permit contains two outfalls. Outfall 001, at lat. 41 - 53' - 20", and long. 74 - 56' - 40", has not been constructed. It is for four phases, ultimately discharging 0.330 MGD, to "The Gulf", a tributary of the Callicoon Creek. Outfall 002 is a pre-existing wastewater treatment system, serving a former motel, and current golf clubhouse and catering hall. It consists of a septic tank, sand filter, and overland flow system, with a discharge to groundwater (class GA), in the drainage area of Tennanah Lake. Upon completion of construction of the Phase IV treatment system, of Outfall 001, this wastewater flow is to be directed to 001, and this system eliminated.

Permit Limits
- The permit limits for outfall 001 will continue with intermittent stream effluent limits as contained in the original permit, which are protective of water quality. Pursuant to an agreement reached in Hearing, outfall 001 will use ultraviolet light disinfection, and the use of chlorine is prohibited. Outfall 002 contains secondary limits, prior to the discharge to groundwater.

Additional Information - This project was originally planned by "The Titan Corporation". The property is currently owned by "Love's Tee Time", realty company.

The Tennanah Lake Townhouse and Villas has surface discharge into The Gulf (tributary of Callicoon Creek), a class C(T) water. Additional information including the current permit, renewal applications, and supporting documentation may be obtained from or inspected at the DEC central office in Albany.
