Niskayuna, NY 12309

Application ID:

4-4224-00024/00010

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Niskayuna, Schenectady County

Project Description:

The Department is proposing to modify, at the request of the permittee, the SPDES permit for the U.S. DOE Laboratory Field Office, Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory Facility. The main modification request is to include treated wastewater from a groundwater remediation project into outfall 002 for discharge to the Mohawk River, resulting in the addition of effluent limits and monitoring requirements for several new parameters at outfall 002. The modification will also include minor technical and administrative changes to the permit, including changing frequency of monitoring for some parameters, for improved consistency with previous issued permit versions and other parameters being monitored under the permit.

The Department has made a tentative determination to issue a permit for a State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) permit modification under Article 17 of the Environmental Conservation Law. This tentative determination indicates that the discharge regulated under this statute is 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 regulated activity 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 sought or for the overall proposed project. A draft permit is available for inspection and comment at the Region 4 office.
