Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Stony Point, Rockland 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 002 8851), 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:

A section has been added to address stormwater discharge management through development and implementation of a stormwater pollution prevention plan. A mercury minimization requirement has been added. An inflow and infiltration management program requirement has been added. A schedule of compliance has been added to address development of the stormwater pollution prevention plan and upgrades to comply with implementation of a more stringent water quality based effluent limit for total residual chloride. The total residual chlorine limit at outfall 001 was reduced. The existing limit will remain in effect as an interim limit until upgrades are completed in accordance with the schedule of compliance. The disinfection season was extended. The monitoring frequency for ammonia, nitrate, nitrite and total kjeldahl nitrogen was increased to provide information regarding nitrogen discharges from the facility.

The modification also includes several other minor reporting modifications. The Facility has surface discharge into the Hudson River, a class SB water. DEC seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance.

Boiceville, NY

Application ID:

3-5140-00150/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Olive, Ulster County


Project Description:

The Department has made a tentative determination to approve this application for a new SPDES permit (SPDES No. NY-027 4038) for a surface discharge (Outfall 001) of 75,000 gallons per day (gpd) of treated sanitary wastewater in conjunction with the construction of the proposed Boiceville Community Wastewater Management Project (CWMP) and Stormwater Improvement Project. The new wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) will provide tertiary treatment of sanitary wastewater via the activated sludge process, sand filtration, micro-filtration and ultraviolet disinfection, and will eliminate a number of existing failing septic systems and associated discharges of raw sanitary wastes to groundwater. The proposed Boiceville WWTP will also consolidate, and discontinue, the existing surface wastewater discharge from the Onteora Junior and Senior High Schools, currently permitted at 27,000 gpd of sanitary discharge. The project includes construction of the following: a new WWTP and stormwater management facilities with outfalls to the Esopus Creek, Class A(ts); construction of 19,380 linear feet (LF) of new 8-inch diameter sewer main and 2,340 LF of 4-inch diameter sewer main; new pump station; and crossings of two NYS protected streams. The first stream crossing of an unnamed tributary, Class B, to the Esopus Creek will include construction of new concrete-encased sewer main and a new 40-foot long, three-sided, 6' x 6' concrete box culvert with precast footings and wingwalls, and installation of new stone rip-rap for embankment protection. The second stream crossing of an unnamed tributary, Class A(t), to the Ashokan Reservoir will involve construction of new, concrete-encased sewer main. The project is located within the New York City Watershed; the WWTP will be constructed to meet requirements of the NYC Watershed Rules & Regulation (WR & R), and to provide wastewater treatment to areas within the hamlet not previously served by municipal sewer. The project generally encompasses those areas east of the Esopus Creek and along NYS Route 28, south from Piney Point Road to an area south of DeSilva Road in the Town of Olive, Ulster County. The draft SPDES permit is available for inspection and comment at the regional office.
