The modification includes the following changes to Outfall 002 (which discharges contact cooling water, condensate and boiler blowdown, and stormwater to Seneca Lake): a proposed increase in the chloride discharge limit from 30,000 lbs/day to 44,000 lb/day (monthly average) and the addition of new limits for Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) including Daily Maximum limits of 1100 mg/L and 120,000 lb/day, due to the proposed increase in flow rate to 13.25 MGD, in order to be protective of water quality of Seneca Lake. The draft permit also includes the addition of: stormwater outfalls (formerly under MSGP), a water treatment chemical page, Best Management Practices, weekly sampling for temperature, a thermal study, biological monitoring requirements to address entrainment, and whole effluent toxicity (WET) testing to address new WTCs and increased TDS. The former Schedule of Compliance was removed because items have been completed . As a tentative determination, the Department seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision. The file is available for review and comment at NYSDEC Region 8 Headquarters.
