Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Wellsville, Allegany County


Project Description:

The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation proposes to modify State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit No. NY-0020621 for the existing discharge of 2.2 million gallons per day of treated sanitary wastewater from the Village of Wellsville Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) to the Genessee River. The draft permit modification resulted from a full technical review under the Department's Environmental Benefit Permit Strategy. The draft permit no longer contains Outfall 002 which has been eliminated. A schedule of compliance for closure of potentially active Outfall 4 is included with this permit. A new limitation for Aluminum has been established. Monitoring for Aluminum has been increased from quarterly to monthly. The previous schedule of compliance has been replaced with one requiring short term monitoring for Beryllium, Cadmium, Chromium, Copper, Lead, Nickel and Phenols. The pH range has been modified to 6.0 - 8.5. Due to low detection levels, the draft permit has removed the final effluent limit for Zinc. The Village of Wellsville WWTP is located on Bolivar Road (Route 417W) in the Village of Wellsville. The draft permit, fact sheets and supporting documents are available for review and comment at the address below. Refer to this application by the application number listed above and by SPDES No. NY-0020621.
