Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands

Project is Located:

Highland, Sullivan County


Project Description:

Applicant proposes to install an additional section of culvert pipe to an existing culvert in order to create a weir effect to enable the existing water elevation of a former lake bed to increase approximately one foot. This increased elevation will result in the flooding of approximately 37% of the 19 acres of former lake to a depth of 2-10 inches. Two pond areas (5.2 and 1.8 acres) within the former lake bed will be created. This flooding will occur within wetland HL-31(class 2). The project is located to the north of Old Mt. Hope-Lumberland Turnpike, approximately 4,500 feet east of NYS Route 55. The purpose for this work is to provide additional open water for wildlife and recreational use.

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 (NY 010 0803, DEC Identification #: 3-5512-00035/00003), the Peekskill Sanitary Sewer District Wastewater Treatment Plant pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 750-1.18, New York State's Environmental Benefit Permit Strategy (EBPS). The changes to the permit are as follows:

The influent sampling requirements for carbonaceous biochemical oxygen demand (CBOD5) 7 day average, BOD5 6 consecutive hour mean, total suspended solids (TSS) 7 day average, and TSS 6 consecutive hour mean have been removed from the permit. This sampling is recommended to be conducted for process control, but is not specifically required by the permit. The mass limits for CBOD5 and TSS were rounded to 2 significant figures. Discharge Outfall 002 has been added in the permit. a compliance schedule is added in the permit to submit an approvable stormwater pollution prevention plan with the information regarding the stormwater outfall(s) within the facility. The total residual chlorine (TRC) limit at Outfall 001 was changed from a technology range limit of 0.5 - 2.0 mg/l to a limit of 0.6 mg/l. The existing maximum limit of 2.0 mg/l will remain in effect as an interim limit until upgrades are completed in accordance with the schedule of compliance. A monthly monitoring requirement for nitrite and nitrate has been added in the permit. The action levels for copper, nickel, and zinc have been adjusted. The monitoring frequency for these parameters has been reduced from monthly to quarterly. The action levels for antimony, cadmium, and lead were changed to quarterly monitoring. The action level for 1,2-dichloroethane has been removed from the permit as this parameter has not been detected in the effluent over the past two years. Monitoring for dissolved metals has been removed from the permit. A short term high intensity monitoring schedule for chromium, phenols, dichlorobromomethane, methylene chloride and mercury has been added in the permit. Sampling will be required 1/week for a 3 month period. The toxicity testing requirements and footnote is added in the permit limits, levels and monitoring page. The modification also includes several other minor reporting modifications.

The Peekskill Sanitary Sewer District Wastewater Treatment Plant has surface discharge into the Hudson River, a class SB water.
