Application ID:

3-3350-00022/00005

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 15 Title 5 Excavation & Fill in Navigable Waters
Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 P/C/I SPDES - Surface Discharge
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

Tuxedo, Orange County


Project Description:

The DEC has tentatively determined to issue to above referenced permits for improvements to the sewage collection system and wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) at Lake Cohasset. The project involves a proposed upgrade to the WWTP that will increase its surface discharge capacity from 13,000 gallons per day (GPD) of sanitary wastewater to 22,000 GPD. The permit will also be renewed on a standard five year term, as required. This SPDES permit (NY0145297) is for a seasonal facility which operates from May 15 - October 15. Upgrade of proposed WWTP treatment process include replacement of the septic tank, replacement of the dosing chambers and alternating siphons, rehabilitation of the open sand filter beds, and replacement of sand filter piping. This draft permit has been modified from the existing SPDES Permit in the following ways:

Draft Permit Pages- Updated permit pages and conditions reflect current Department guidance, format and nomenclature; permit pages and conditions have been renumbered and reordered.

Draft Permit Limits, Levels and Monitoring- Design flow has been changed from 13,000 to 22,000 gpd based on the Basis of Design Report and additional information submitted by the consultant. The design flow frequency has been changed from daily to instantaneous in accordance with TOGS 1.3.3. and flow sample type to meter; mass limits for BOD5 and TSS have been changed to reflect the change in design flow; a total residual chlorine (TRC) limit of 0.1 mg/l has been added to the permit based on a regulatory standard for TRC for protection of aquatic life. Since the disinfection system already includes a dechlorination system, neither an interim limit nor a schedule for upgrade of the system has been included in the permit; per TOGS 1.3.3 Appendix A, sample frequencies for BOD5, TSS, and fecal coliform have been changed from yearly to twice/year to reflect the minimum sampling requirements in the DEC-EPA agreement; per water quality based effluent limits, influent monitoring for ammonia and a limit of 3.5 mg/l for June - October and 8.7 mg/l for November - May has been added to the permit; per water quality based effluent limits and based on TOGS 1.3.6 for downstream ponded waters, a a total phosphorus limit of 1.0 mg/l as a monthly average has been added to the permit.


The footnotes for the Permit Limits, Levels and Monitoring pages have been updated.

Interstate Environmental Commission limits were removed because they do not apply.

This project also involves a cumulative total of 2,445 linear feet of disturbance to the bed and/or banks of Lake Cohasset for the burial/placement of sewage collection system piping, which will result in a cumulative total of 252 cubic yards of fill. The draft permit contains best management practices regarding activities conducted in and close to the water to prevent any contravention of water quality or damage to the resource.

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 15 Title 5 Excavation & Fill in Navigable Waters
Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 P/C/I SPDES - Surface Discharge
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

Haverstraw, Rockland County


Project Description:

DEC has tentatively determined to issue a modification to the existing State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) permit for the Lake Sebago STP and to issue a new Excavation & Fill permit and Section 401 Water Quality Certification for repairs and improvements to the sewage collection system serving this wastewater treatment plant (WWTP).
This SPDES Permit (NY 014 5220) is for a seasonal facility which operates from May 15 - October 15. The plant will be undergoing an upgrade of its treatment process which has been proposed to include replacement of the septic tank and dosing chamber, replacement of the open sand filter beds with buried sand filters, and extension of the outfall piping to increase the distance from Sebago Beach. No increases in design flow are requested. This draft permit has been modified from the existing SPDES Permit in the following ways:

Draft Permit Pages :
Updated permit pages and conditions reflect current Department guidance, format and nomenclature; Permit pages and conditions have been renumbered and reordered; The latitude and longitude of the outfall has been changed since the outfall has been relocated.

Draft Permit Limits, Levels and Monitoring
: The total residual chlorine (TRC) limit of 0.1 mg/l has been added to the permit based on a regulatory standard for TRC for protection of aquatic life. Since the disinfection system already includes a dechlorination system, neither an interim limit nor a schedule for upgrade of the system has been included in the permit. The monitoring frequency remains twice/day; Per TOGS 1.3.3 Appendix A, sample types for BOD, TSS have been changed from grab to 6 hour composites to reflect the minimum sampling requirements in the DEC-EPA agreement; Per water quality based effluent limits, an ammonia limit of 15.5 mg/l for June - October has been added to the permit; A monthly monitoring requirement has been added for total phosphorus since the potential for a future phosphorus limit exists; The footnotes for the Permit Limits, Levels and Monitoring pages have been updated; Interstate Environmental Commission (IEC) limits have been removed because this facility does not discharge into an IEC regulated receiving water.

The Excavation and Fill and Water Quality Certification portions of the application involve disturbance to the bed of Lake Sebago in three locations for the purpose of installing/burying sewage collection system piping and extension of the WWTP outfall piping into the Lake. Total cumulative proposed disturbances at the three sites will result in 51.23 cubic yards of fill. Total disturbance for the extension of the WWTP outfall will result in 304 cubic yards of fill.
