Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Champlain, Clinton County

Project Description:

The Department has made a tentative determination to renew, and, in accordance with its Environmental Benefit Permit Strategy, to modify the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) permit for the Village of Champlain Waste Water Treatment Plant. The existing permitted facility has a design flow discharge of 0.65 million gallons per day of treated wastewater to the Great Chazy River, a Class C waterbody, from a secondary treatment plant located at River Street in the Village of Champlain. The permit modifications include: 1) addition of a more stringent phosphorus limit of 3.45 lbs per day, 12 month rolling average, 2) increased sampling frequency for phosphorus from once per month to twice per month, 3) removal of all toxic parameters from the permit since all industrial users have closed and no longer discharge to the WWTP and sampling for the last five years has not identified any toxic parameters of concern, 4) deletion of the requirement for the WWTP to implement a mini pre-treatment program since all industrial users have closed and no longer discharge to the WWTP. The draft permit (SPDES # NY 003 2204) is available for review by making an appointment with the contact person listed below.
