Application ID:

4-0124-00112/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Coeymans, Albany County


Project Description:

The Department has made a tentative determination to issue a State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) permit under Article 17 of the Environmental Conservation Law to Oldcastle Precast Building Systems for the discharge of stormwater and process wastewater to the Spruyt Kill, and groundwater, from their facility which is located on County Route 101. The facility has been in operation for years and produces various pre-cast concrete components that are used in the construction of residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional buildings.

The facility currently has a SPDES Stormwater General Permit that authorizes the discharge of stormwater from the facility. The company is seeking coverage under an individual SPDES permit for all water discharges associated with this facility. The proposed permit will authorize the discharge of stormwater, as well as wastewater generated from the concrete cutting operations, truck washout operations, process wastewater and backwash from water softeners from four outfalls as follows:

Outfall 1: Designed for up to 270 gallons per day (g.p.d.) of combined stormwater and industrial runoff to the Spruyt Kill.

Outfall 2: Designed for up to 270 gpd of combined stormwater runoff, 120 gpd of truck washout wastewater, and stormwater discharge to Spruyt Kill. Flows are directed to a detention area for settling prior to discharge.

Outfall 3: Designed for up to 1,600 gpd of discharge of wastewater from the process batch plant and plank operations to groundwater. Wastewater is neutralized using citric acid and directed to a settling pit prior to discharge to groundwater.

Outfall 4: Designed for the discharge of up to 200 gpd of backwash from a water softener to groundwater. No treatment of the water is provided.

This tentative determination indicates that the proposed discharges regulated under this statute are considered to satisfy regulatory standards for permit issuance, based on information available to the Department at this time.

As a tentative determination, the Department seeks comments on the proposed draft permit prior to making a final decision on permit issuance. As such, this tentative determination does not signify department approval for or endorsement of the activity for which a permit is being sought. A draft permit is available for inspection and comment at the department office listed in this notice. When corresponding with the department refer to this application by the application number listed in this notice.
