Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Ashford, Cattaraugus County


Project Description:

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is pursuing a Department Initiated Modification (DIM) and renewal to the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit (NY0000973), pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 750-1.18, and 750-1.19, the Priority Ranking System known as New York State's Environmental Benefit Permit Strategy (EBPS). This is a re-notice of the Notice of Intent to Modify published in the Environmental Notice Bulletin on 2/5/10.

The West Valley Demonstration Project, located in the Town of Ashford, Cattaraugus County, discharge consists of process wastewater, water production wastewater, north plateau surface water/groundwater recovery and treatment, NDA groundwater interceptor, and miscellaneous contaminated groundwater and stormwater, sanitary wastewater, utility wastewater. Treatment consists of low level (liquid) waste treatment facility skid A, skid B and lagoons. There is also a mercury pretreatment process at the source. The effluent from mercury treatment is designated at outfall 01B. Sanitary wastewater treatment consists of extended aeration activated sludge. The facility has surface discharge into Erdman Brook Segment (D) of Frank Creek (C). As a result of comments received from the permittee and several teleconferences between DEC staff and the permittee, the proposed draft permit has been revised.

The following changes to the permit are proposed: - Monitoring Sample Frequency has been reduced for oil and grease, nitrate, nitrite, Arsenic (TR), mercury, sulfate and Chlorine (TR). - Sampling frequency for cyanide, amendable to chlorination has been revised. Due to the low water quality based effluent limits for parameters at outfall 001 and 007, a short-term high-intensity sampling program for has been added. A schedule of compliance has been added for these parameters. In the meantime, these parameters have been removed from permit limits for Outfalls 001 and 007. Whole effluent toxicity testing sample requirements have been revised. Outfalls S34, 01B, 007, S20 and S34 have been added to the Mercury Minimization Plan and Outfall S30 has been removed. A requirement for a Total Dissolved Solids Study at Outfall 007 is also included in the schedule of compliance page of the revised permit.
