Project Description:

The applicant proposes to replace an existing 80' wide bridge with a 120' wide bridge while removing an existing 25' x 35' auxiliary bridge located to the south. Also, approximately 395' of streambank will be stabilized with stone rip rap. The larger bridge opening will accommodate the higher flows resulting from the removal of the secondary bridge. In-stream work will be prohibited from March 15th - June 30th to protect the warmwater fishery.

Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Corning, Steuben 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 5721), 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:

Water Quality Based Effluent Limits (WQBEL) - were calculated for all parameters in the permit in order to determine if the existing effluent quality of each pollutant has a reasonable potential to exceed the WQBEL. If so, the WQBEL is required to be placed in the permit for that pollutant. Action Levels - DEC guidance requires that the existing effluent quality be used to set an action level. Monitoring frequencies are once per month. Mercury - the proposed action level will be 50ng/l using EPA Method 1631 until DEC reviews the future action level results. Chesapeake Bay Nutrient Requirements - nutrient monitoring, action levels and a schedule of compliance has been added. A requirement for submittal of an approvable engineering report which contains recommendations for improving nutrient removal without a major capital upgrade of the treatment process has been added. A requirement of identification of cost-effective strategies to achieve greater levels of treatment, considering a range of effluent nutrient concentrations from current conditions down to the equivalent of levels achievable using best available technology has been added. Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan - requirement has been added because the facility has a design flow at or above 1MGD and stormwater discharges. Mini-Pretreatment Program - The Mini-Pretreatment compliance schedule was replace with updated Mini-Pretreatment Program.

The modification also includes several other minor reporting modifications. References to General Conditions were replaced with 6NYCRR Part 750. The facility has surface discharge into the Chemung River, a class C water. DEC seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance.

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 000 4308), pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 750-1.18, New York State's Environmental Benefit Permit Strategy (EBPS).

A requirement for submittal of an approvable engineering report which contains recommendations for improving nutrient removal without a major capital upgrade of the treatment process has been added. A requirement of identification of cost-effective strategies to achieve greater levels of treatment, considering a range of effluent nutrient concentrations from current conditions down to the equivalent of levels achievable using best available technology has been added. A daily average of 3.5 mg/l total phosphorus has been included. Short-term high intensity sampling - will be required for several conventional parameters listed in the schedule of compliance. Mercury - Mercury was detected in outfall 001 during the priority pollutant scan. The detected concentration is insignificantly below the Best Professional Judgement limit. As a result, no mercury limit will be required.

The modification also includes several other minor reporting modifications. The monitoring page includes the third equalization tank. A continuation of the Discharge Notification Act requirements was added. References to General Conditions were replaced with 6NYCRR Part 750 and Special Conditions (Part I) was removed. Approved Water Treatment Chemicals were added to the permit. The facility has surface discharge into the Cohocton River, a class C water. DEC seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance.
