Project is Located:

Hoosick, Rensselaer 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 009 7845), pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 750-1.18, New York State's Environmental Benefit Permit Strategy (EBPS). The following changes to the permit are proposed: Add Outfall 01A which is the batch discharge of treated process wastewater. Change is due to cessation of production and a turn to less water intensive research and development. Effluent Limits changed from mass to concentration because of the batch nature of the discharge. No additional metal discharge is allowed. Whole Effleunt Toxicity (WET) action levels changed to reflect the decrease in process wastewater. New WET language added for footnotes on pages 4 & 5. Decrease action levels for organics to reflect updated Best Professional Judgement. Add effluent limits and monitoring for pH and oil and grease and monitoring requirements for flow at Outfall 002. The modification also includes several other minor reporting modifications. The facility has surface discharge into The Hoosic River, a class C(T) water. DEC seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance.
