Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Fishkill, Dutchess County


Project Description:

The Department of Environmental Conservation has received an application to modify the existing State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) permit for the above referenced wastewater treatment plant (WWTP). The existing WWTP is nearing the end of its useful life and is currently permitted to discharge a maximum amount of 500,000 gallons per day of treated sanitary waste to the Hudson River, which is designated a Class B water at the outfall location. The subject modification would authorize construction of a new WWTP at 75 Industrial Way in the Town of Fishkill, resulting in an increased discharge volume of 750,000 gallons per day. New activated sludge treatment technology will include two primary clarifiers, an intermittent cycle extended aeration system continuous sequencing batch reactor, and disinfection via a chlorine contact chamber. The existing WWTP will be decommissioned when the new WWTP is constructed, tested and proven to be effective. Outfall location will not change and there will be no work to the bed or banks of the Hudson River as associated with the proposed project.
The facility is considered a significant minor facility, Discharge Class 07. The submission of monthly Discharge Monitoring Reports (DMR) and Wastewater Facility Operation Reports are required. The draft permit contains unchanged effluent limitations for pH, Temperature, Settleable Solids, Total Residual Chlorine (TRC), Fecal Coliform, and contains secondary treatment limits as required by federal regulations at 30 milligrams per liter (mg/l) of Biological Oxygen Demand 5 (BOD5) and Total Suspended Solids (TSS) as a 30-day average and 45 mg/l as a 7-day average. Changes to the draft permit include: a definitions and a monitoring page was added, which contains a diagram of the facility and the locations of sampling points; Discharge Notification Act requirements were added; an amended address for the Bureau of Water Compliance and the Regional Water Engineer on the Recording, Reporting and Monitoring page was included; and permit pages have been renumbered and reordered.

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Washington, Dutchess County


Project Description:

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (Department) has received an application, dated 05 January 2007, to modify the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) permit for the Village of Millbrook Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) to change the annual average flow calculation methodology to a 12 month rolling average (12-MRA). The WWTP is currently permitted to discharge 250,000 gallons per day (GPD) of treated sanitary wastewater to the East Branch of Wappingers Creek, Class C(t). The subject modification does not include a request to increase flow or WWTP capacity. The Department has tentatively approved the subject modification and has issued a draft SPDES permit for review. This modification is being treated as new and is being published in accordance with 6 NYCRR Part 621.
The Department's Division of Water Technical & Operational Guidance Series (TOGS)1.3.3 allows the inclusion of a twelve -month rolling average for wastewater plants serving separate sewer systems if all of the concentration and mass based effluent limits can be met and the facility has a Department approved program for control of inflow and infiltration (I&I) to the sewer system. The Village of Millbrook has met these requirements, as verified by review of monthly Discharge Monitoring Reports (DMR) submitted as required by the current permit. The Village has also worked with the Department over the past year to produce an approvable, and aggressive, I&I plan as required by Department policy. The revised draft permit includes a a requirement that there shall be no sewer extensions outside the approved district with out prior Department approval. Any connections outside the district proposed in the future will require an assessment of online capacity.
This facility is considered an EPA 'significant minor facility', Discharge Class 07. The submission of monthly DMR and Wastewater Facility Operation Reports are required. Permit pages used are based on current Department guidance, format and nomenclature. Changes in the revised draft permit include : a definitions and a monitoring page, which contains a diagram of the facility and the locations of sampling points; Discharge Notification Act requirements; addresses for the Bureau of Water Compliance and the Regional Water Engineer on the Recording, Reporting and Monitoring page have been changed; permit pages are renumbered and reordered; monitoring and recording requirements for the flow from overflow retention facility; submission requirement for a Wet Weather Operating Plan for the WWTP; and inflow/infiltration management program requirements. Effluent limits include: flow limit of 250,000 GPD; current permit limits for BOD, TSS, pH, Temperature, Settleable Solids and Fecal Coliform were continued; phosphorus monitoring added for informational purposes because a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) is being considered for the downstream basin and there is potential for a future phosphorus limit of around 0.5 mg/l; and a TRC interim limit of 2.0 mg/l seasonally from 01 May to 01 October (this will change to final water quality limit of 0.1 mg/l). A compliance schedule for submission of an engineering report describing the facilities necessary to meet the total residual chlorine(TRC) limit of 0.1 mg/l is also required.

Newburgh, Orange County


Project Description:

The Department is in the process of renewing the Title V permit for Danskammer Generating Station which consists of four Combustion Engineering (CE) tangentially fired steam generating boilers (Units #1 and #2) each rated at 65 megawatts (MW) and capable of firing No. 6 fuel oil and natural gas; a CE unit rated at 135 MW (Unit #3) capable of firing No. 6 oil, natural gas, and coal; and a CE unit rated at 235 MW (Unit#4) capable of firing oil, natural gas, and coal. This application includes a Title IV renewal with SO2 allowances for Units #1, #2, #3, and #4 of 948, 920, 3129, and 6030 respectively for years 2000 through 2009 and 950, 921, 3134, and 6041 respectively for year 2010 forward.

This renewal includes conditions recently promulgated under Regulations 6 NYCRR Parts 243, 244, and 245. These regulations require facilities to obtain/possess at least as many 'allocations' of Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) and Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) as they emit into the atmosphere during a specified period of time. An 'allocation' is a unit of pollution which is limited by a budget established in the regulations. The Department developed these regulations in response to the United States Environmental Protection Agencies (EPA's) recent "Clean Air Interstate Rule" (CAIR). The regulations are included in New York's State Implementation Plan (SIP) which has been approved by EPA as required by the Clean Air Act of 1990.

In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.7(b)(9) and 201-6.4(c), the Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has the authority to bar issuance of any Title V Facility Permit if it is determined not to be in compliance with applicable requirements of the Clean Air Act or 6NYCRR Part 201.
