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 (NY010 4060, DEC Identification #: 4-0101-00010), the NYS Empire State Plaza Facility pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 750-1.18, New York State's Environmental Benefit Permit Strategy (EBPS). This permit modification had initiated with a request by the permittee to increase the discharge temperature of its non-contact cooling water (NCCW). Further review prompted a full technical review. The NYSDEC converted the permit modification request to a Department-initiated EBPS review. The NYSDEC has determined that the original permit modification request by the permittee to raise the discharge temperature above its current level must be denied. The changes to the permit are as follows: Flow - limit changed from Daily Average (DA) to Daily Maximum (DM) to reflect total pumping capacity as the actual maximum. Temperature and Temperature Differential - This DM limit is being specified as interim until completion and evaluation of a Thermal Standard Study. Biological requirements and a related Compliance Schedule have been added for the permittee to demonstrate compliance with 6 NYCRR Part 704 - Criteria Governing Thermal Discharges The modification also includes several other minor reporting modifications. The NYS Empire State Plaza Facility has surface discharge into the Hudson River, a class C water.
