Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

Cortlandt, Westchester County


Project Description:

The Department, in accordance with 6 NYCRR Part 621 has determined the application for a Section 401 Water Quality Certificate submitted by Entergy Nuclear Northeast, LLC for Indian Point Units 2 and 3 is complete. The application was submitted to the Department in association with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's federal relicensing process. The federal Clean Water Act requires that, prior to the issuance of a federal license or permit, the State must certify that the action meets State water quality standards. Indian Point Nuclear Units 2 and 3 are pressurized water nuclear reactors that produce electric power. The net capacities of Units 2 and 3 are 1078 MW and 1080 MW, respectively. The facility is located on the east side of the Hudson River in the Village of Buchanan. Each unit utilizes a once-through condenser cooling water system with the design flow rate of approximately 1.2 billion gallons of water per day. The application submitted by Entergy and currently under review by the Department, requests a Water Quality Certificate for a term of 20 years. The initial application submitted by Entergy and received by the Department on April 6, 2009, requested a Water Quality Certificate for the continued operation of the facility without any substantial modifications to the existing once-through cooling water system. In a submission to the Department dated February 12, 2010, Entergy proposes to retrofit the existing cooling water intake structure with cylindrical wedge wire screens for the purpose of reducing adverse environmental impact to aquatic resources. The Department staff has not made a final determination regarding the application. In accordance with the federal Clean Water Act, it must render a decision within one year of receipt of the application. As such, the Department will render a final decision on the application on or before April 6, 2010.

Application ID:

3-5546-00063/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands

Project is Located:

Pound Ridge, Westchester County


Project Description:

The DEC has tentatively determined to issue the above-referenced permit for two crossings of NYS Regulated Freshwater Wetland (FW)D-3, Class I, and its Adjacent Area (AA) as part of the construction of a single family residence. The two crossings are for the purpose of installing a driveway and for the installation of a force main that will carry sewage from the house to the on-site septic system. Direct disturbance to FW D-3 is calculated as 3,410 square feet and disturbance to AA D-3 is calculated as 18,950 square feet. All practicable alternatives to said disturbances have been evaluated and DEC has determined that the project meets issuance standards. A wetland mitigation of 25,870 square feet has been agreed upon with the applicant, resulting in a wetland mitigation ratio of loss to creation that exceeds 1:1.
