This is a renotice of a previous posting published in the Environmental Notice Bulletin on April 23, 2008. Specific changes and additions from the current permit are listed below:

This facility is located in the New York portion of the Chesapeake Bay watershed, the Chesapeake Bay Nutrient requirements are addressed in the draft permit.

1. According to comply with Chesapeake Bay Nutrient Requirements, 12-month rolling average action levels for total nitrogen (19 mg/l and 160 lbs/day) and total phosphorus (3.1 mg/l and 25.9 lbs/day) have been included at Outfall 001 in the draft permit. The permittee shall submit an engineering report to present:

(1) recommendations to improve nutrient removal without a major capital upgrade of the treatment process; and,
(2) an evaluation of the capital upgrade necessary to achieve 5 mg/l nitrogen and 0.5 mg/l phosphorus.

This requirement is listed in the Schedule of Compliance. Influent monitoring frequency for nitriate, nitrite and phosphorus is quarterly.

2. A revised cyanide action level of 0.4 lbs/day based on water quality evaluation.

3. Discharge notification requirements have been included in the draft permit and a waiver request form sent to the permittee.

4. Monitoring requirements for Mercury by EPA Method 1631 and Iron is included in the Schedule of Compliance, and the results must be submitted to the Department by "Effective Date of Permit Modification + 8 months." These were required in the Department's "Request for Information" package of March 8, 2007, but the data for Mercury was not analyzed by EPA Method 1631 and Iron data was not submitted.

The modification also includes several other minor reporting modifications. The Village of Bath Wastewater Treatment Plant has surface discharge into the Cohocton River, a class C water.
