Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Niagara Falls, Niagara County


Project Description:

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is pursuing a Department Initiated Modification (DIM) to the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit (NY 002 6336), 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:

Effluent Limitations: Bioaccumulative Chemicals of Concern-all determinations of compliance with substance specific discharge limits were made by comparing monitoring results to the compliance level. The calculated limits are the goals for compliance with the receiving water quality standards. Mercury - The proposed limit will be 50 ng/l until the DEC reviews the Mercury minimization Plan (MMP). Permittee will be required to perform all future monitoring using EPA Method 1631. Schedule of Compliance-for PCBs, Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP), and Sanitary Overflows were removed because the due dates were met. Compliance schedule for mercury was replaced with the MMP. Metals - Practical Quanitation Limits were used to calculate the revised effluent limits. Determinations of compliance with substance specific discharge limits were made by comparing monitoring results to compliance level. Naphtalene, Tetrachlorobenzenes-removed. Three year monitoring data shows no detection in the effluent. Outfall Lists: Outfalls 005 and 008 are scheduled to be eliminated in accordance with the Combined Sewer Overflow Long Term Control Plan (CSO LTCP) schedule. Sanitary Sewer Overflow outfalls 012, 014, 015, 016, 017, 018 and 019 were removed. These outfalls are addressed under a consent order currently being negotiated. Combined Sewer Overflows: Best Management Practices Pages were updated. CSO LTCP was approved and is included. Sanitary Sewer Overflows: Requirements have been removed, but are addressed under a consent order currently being negotiated. Stormwater Outfalls: A requirement for a SWPPP was included because the design flow is at or above 1 mgd and stormwater discharges. Short-Term High Intensity Monitoring: Has been included in this permit for Total Arsenic, Bis(2-Ethylhexyl) Phthalate, and Dichlorobenzene.

The modification also includes several other minor reporting modifications. The Permittee name was changed to the Niagara Falls Water Board. The Facility has surface discharge into the Niagara River via Adams Tailrace Tunnel, a class A Special water. DEC seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance.
