The Department intends to modify the Villages discharge permit in accordance with NYS's Environmental Benefit Permit Strategy. The permit last underwent technical review in 1987. In the intervening years there have been changes in applicable federal and state law, regulation, policy and permit format. Consequently, there are several permit changes proposed. Specifically the addition of effluent limits for carbonaceous BOD5 (CBOD5); an allowable UOD of 132 mg/l year round; Total ammonia, as NH3 must be monitored and recorded on the discharge monitoring report; an allowable discharge for Total Residual Chlorine (TRC) has been reduced to 0.3 mg/l. The resulting modified permit is considerably more strict than the existing permit and is available for review in the Syracuse Office.
