Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

North Hempstead, Nassau County


Project Description:

The NYSDEC is proposing to renew and modify the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit for the Glenwood Power Station and has prepared a draft permit. Notice of this draft permit, which specifies the facility upgrades necessary to implement NYSDEC staff's Best Technology Available (BTA) determination, initially ran in the October 22, 2008, and November 15, 2008 ENB. Notice is provided now for the renewal of this SPDES permit, and for changes made to the draft permit in response to comments received during the comment period.

Since this facility is currently operated at less than 15% capacity, and since operation may not continue beyond the current Power Service Agreement with the Long Island Power Authority which expires May 28, 2013, the Department has agreed to modify the implementation schedule for the facility upgrades provided that the facility implement other actions upon permit issuance, such as, continued operation of the fish return system, continuous use of traveling screens, aggressive pump shutdowns, and continued intermittent operation at or below 15 % capacity.

Department staff have selected; (1) the installation and operation of Variable Speed Pumps (VSP), (2) continuous operation of the traveling screens and the existing fish return system, and (3) aggressive pump shut downs when one or both units are not operating; as the technologies and/or operational measures that will meet the requirements of 6 NYCRR Part 704.5 and Section 316(b) of the federal Clean Water Act. This selection of technologies and/or operational measures is referred to as a BTA determination, and the schedule for implementation and follow-up activities have been incorporated into this draft permit.

The SPDES permit for this facility authorizes the discharge of non-contact cooling water, treated wastewater, boiler blowdown, and storm water, to both Hempstead Harbor and groundwater. The facility is located on the east shore of Hempstead Harbor, part of Long Island Sound on a 5 acre parcel bordered by Glenhead Road to the north, Shore Road to the east, Motts Cove to the south and Hempstead Harbor to the west.

Additional information can be found in the fact sheet which is available, along with the draft SPDES permit, at the DEC Region 1 office, by calling the contact listed below, or at the following address: http://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/6061.html.
