Permit(s) Applied for:
Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Surface Discharge
Project is Located:
Bainbridge, Chenango County
The Department is proposing to modify and renew the SPDES permit for AES Jennison Generating Station. The AES Jennison Generating Station last operated in 2000 and there are no plans to restart the facility in the near future. The generator and turbine have been removed and both the intake and discharge canals were permanently sealed. As the only discharge will be from stormwater runoff and building sumps, the facility will no longer be permitted as a power plant. The stormwater runoff discharges into the Susquehanna River. The building basement sumps (and some stormwater) discharges to the former Ash Pond with the ultimate receiving waters being groundwater. No monitoring will be required for the stormwater runoff into the Susquehanna River. However, groundwater monitoring will continue to be required for the Jennison Station and consist of quarterly grab samples from 4 up-gradient and 7 down-gradient wells. The results will be reported annually. DEC approved -monitoring methods currently being used will be continued for the renewed SPDES permit.
