ENB Region 7 Completed Applications 05/13/2009

Broome County

Applicant:

AES Westover LLC
720 Riverside Dr
Johnson City, NY 13790 -1839

Facility:

AES Westover
720 Riverside Dr
Johnson City, NY 13790 -1839

Application ID:

7-0346-00045/00002

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Union, Broome 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-000-3875), pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 750-1.18, New York State?s Environmental Benefit Permit Strategy (EBPS). AES Westover is a coal-fired, 146 MW facility located on the north bank of the Susquehanna River and consists of two units, 7 and 8, that went into operation in 1943 and 1951 respectively.
To provide cooling for the two units, a shoreline cooling water intake structure (CWIS) takes in up to 102 million gallons per day (MGD) which, when at peak, represents 2.63 percent of the river's annual average flow. The intake structure consists of two circulating water pumps per unit and both must run when water temperatures are above 50 degrees F. Waste thermal water is discharged via Outfall 001 into Choconut Creek. The discharge shall maintain, as in the current permit, a winter/summer delta (difference between discharge temperature and receiving water temperature) of 34/30 degrees F (respectively) as well as a maximum winter/summer discharge temperature for the discharge of 86/120 degrees F (respectively). The proposed draft permit has the following significant changes to the current permit: Cooling water discharges will now be monitoring for net rate of heat addition at Outfall 001. Also at Outfall 001, additional ammonia, metals, nitrate, phosphorus, and toxicity testing will be required and the chlorine permit limit reduced. Additional metal analysis will be required for Outfalls 01E and 01D. Outfall 002 will now have monitoring requirements and effluent limitations. In addition, three stormwater outfalls will now be monitored for pH, flow, total suspended solids, oil and grease, and iron. The groundwater monitoring program will require additional parameters for polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon compounds in the coal pile area. Moreover, metals will be reported in total form and not dissolved form. Biological requirements and thermal study requirements are updated in this permit in compliance with 6NYCRR § 704.5 and CWA Section 316(b).

Changes include a requirement for best technology available to be applied to the location, design, construction and capacity of cooling water intake structures. Technologies and/or operational measures must be implemented to reduce the annual impingement mortality and entrainment by, at a minimum, 80% and 60% respectively. An updated Best Management Practices (BMP) plan has been included. The permittee is required to update their previously approved BMP according to the Schedule of Compliance. A new page for water treatment chemical (WTC) requirements with a list of approved WTCs is included. A short term, high intensity sampling program for mercury is required
