Project is Located:
The Department has made a tentative determination to issue the permit for a State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit under Article 17 of the Environmental Conservation Law. The approved application is for a modification of a permit for an existing discharge of a varying amount of treated sanitary wastewater from an on-site residence and treated process wastewater from an on-site treatment plant into the Otsquago Creek, a Class C(T) waterbody. The discharges occur from the applicant's facility located in the Town of Stark, Herkimer County. There are no significant changes to the existing permit.

As a tentative determination, the Department seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance.
