Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Wallkill, Orange 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 4422), 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:

The facility's stormwater discharge has been included along with requirements for development of a stormwater pollution prevention plan. A simplified mercury minimization program has been added and is considered sufficient to address mercury being discharged. An Inflow and Infiltration Management Program requirement has been added to insure ongoing evaluation and maintenance of the sewerage system and removal of extraneous flow sources. A Schedule of Compliance page has been added to address development of a stormwater pollution prevention plan. The mass limits for carbonaceous oxygen demand 5, ultimate oxygen demand and total suspended solids have been revised to reflect department guidance. The discharge limit for copper and cadmium has been reduced to the water quality based effluent limit. This is based on 3 years of monitoring data. The discharge limit for zinc has been reduced to an action level. This is based on 3 years of monitoring data. As a result of this change, the monitoring frequency was also reduced to be consistent with other action levels in the permit. The discharge limit for unchlorinated phenols has been revised to a modified effluent limit based upon the Aug. 2008 Phenols Quantification and Removal Study conducted by the Town of Wallkill. Toxicity testing has been included as a permit requirement. Action Levels for antimony, chromium, arsenic, silver, and bis(2-ethyl-hexyl)phthalate have been reduced based on 3 years of monitoring data. A reduced water quality based effluent limit for benzidine has been recommended. An interim limit will be applied while the permittee conducts a quantification and Removal Study. Toxicity testing requirements have been added to reflect department guidance. Whole effluent toxicity testing is required quarterly for one year during the permit terms and to be repeated every five years.

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