Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Article 15 Title 3 Aquatic Pesticides

Project is Located:

Kent, Putnam County


Project Description:

The Department has tentatively determined to issue the above referenced permit for the application of the aquatic herbicide, fluridone, and the aquatic algaecide, copper sulfate, to Pine Pond in order to manage the aquatic invasive species, Eurasian water milfoil (myrophyllum spicatum.) Pine Pond is approximately 75 acres in area with a mean depth of 10 feet. Freshwater Wetlands LC-11 and LC-12 are located on the northeastern and southern/southeastern portions, respectively, of the pond. Treatment is proposed for the whole lake to exclude Freshwater Wetland areas. Water holding will not be preformed, however a 12" to 15" drawdown is planned via flashboards located approximately .5 mile downstream on the outlet stream. Downstream riparian landowner/user notification has been preformed and signage will be required during times of treatment. The permit will include monitoring requirements and the required submission of a report on the effectiveness of the treatment. In future years, the permittee will be required to prepare a comprehensive lake management plan if they wish to apply herbicide to this waterbody.

Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

North Castle, Westchester County


Project Description:

The Department has determined to modify the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) permit, NY0109584, DEC ID number 3-5538-00066/00001, for the North Castle Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) in accordance with NYCRR Part 750-1.18(b)(3). The permit was modified in the following ways:

1. The first page of the permit was updated to reflect the current expiration date.

2. The current permit, issued August 15, 2006, contains a compliance schedule requiring the permittee to perform sampling and analysis of STP effluent for total zinc and cyanide and submit the results to the Department. The sampling was required because, while the application for permit modification showed that zinc and cyanide were present in the effluent, the Department did not have enough data to determine whether or not a limit or action level for those parameters should be included in the 2006 permit. A re-opener clause was included with the compliance schedule, allowing the Department to reopen the permit after review of the zinc and cyanide sampling data. Since the sampling has been completed, the compliance schedule was removed from the draft permit.

3. The sampling results were submitted to the Department on March 21, 2007 and showed that average effluent levels of both zinc and cyanide exceed calculated water quality based effluent limits. After review of the results, the Department has determined to include a requirement for the permittee do undergo a quantification and removals study for zinc and cyanide. The study requires that the sources (including industrial, raw water, and residential sources) of zinc and cyanide to the STP be identified and quantified and that the removals obtained through the STP be quantified as well. The permit further requires that a report be submitted to the Department and that the report identify the actions the permittee will undertake to meet the calculated Water Quality Based Effluent Limits of 33 ug/l (0.04 lbs/day) for Total Zinc and 5.2 ug/l (0.02 lbs/day) for Available Cyanide. If all controllable sources are minimized, the only sources left are uncontrollable, and the water quality limits still cannot be met, the permittee may request that the permit be modified to include a modified effluent limit in accordance with 6NYCRR Part 702.16(b)(2).

4. The compliance schedule for submission of an engineering report describing the facilities necessary to meet the total residual chlorine limit was removed, as the facility doesn't use chlorine for disinfection. Ultraviolet disinfection is used, so there is no chlorine residual in the wastewater.

5. Footnote 5 on pages 3 and 4 was modified to clarify where the permittee should send certifications when construction of the plant upgrade is completed.
