Facility:

Application ID:

9-2912-00041/00022

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

North Tonawanda, Niagara County


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 000 1198, DEC Identification #: 9-2912-00041/00022), the Occidental Chemical Corporation/Durez Division Facility 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:

A proposed interim limit for Mercury will be 200 ng/l until the Department reviews the required Mercury Minimization Program. The water quality based effluent limits for bioaccumulative chemicals of concern will become effective on 11/16/2010. Oil and grease, zinc, total dibenzofuran and Bis(hydroxyphenyl) methanes have been removed from the permit because a 3 year monitoring did not detect these parameters in the effluent stream. A request for concentration-based action levels will be granted. Monitoring has been reduced from semi-annual to annual because action levels have not been exceeded in the last 3 years. The revised permit will require a flow limit of 0.36 mgd based on the proposed increased flow of 250 gpm. A Toxicity Testing Program has been included in the permit.

The modification also includes several other minor reporting modifications.

The Occidental Chemical Corporation/Durez Division Facility has surface discharge into the Niagara River via storm sewer, a class A-special water.

Additional information including the current permit, renewal applications, and supporting documentation may be obtained from or inspected at the DEC central office in Albany. Substantive comments on the permit or requests for hearing or both must be submitted in writing to the contact person. DEC seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance.
