The existing limit will remain in effect until upgrades are completed in accordance with the schedule of compliance. A sampling protocol for fecal coliform and TRC has been added. Discharge Outfall 002 (designated as a stormwater outfall) has been added. Monitoring for flow and chemical oxygen demand has been added to Outfall 002. Water quality based effluent limits for lead and nickel has been changed based on review of the discharge monitoring data. Monitoring for lead and nickel has been reduced from monthly to quarterly. Action levels for antimony, arsenic, selenium, silver and zine were reduced to reflect the level of discharges from the facility's system. A short term, high intensity monitoring schedule has been added. Mass limits for biochemical oxygen demand and total suspended solids were changed in compliance with DEC guidance. Toxicity testing requirements has been added in the permit limits, levels and monitoring page. The permit also incudes the following requirements: A mercury minimization program and routine monitoring using EPA method 1631.

The modification also includes several other minor reporting modifications. The facility has surface discharge into the Hudson River, a class SB water.
