Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Catskill, Greene County


Project Description:

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is pursuing a Department Initiated Modification (DIM) to the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit (NY0007242), 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 modification will also serve to renew the SPDES permit, the term of which was extended under the State Administrative Procedures Act (SAPA).

Lehigh Northeast Cement Company - Cementon Terminal (Lehigh) is a cement manufacturing facility with a design flow of 1.16 mgd. Lehigh is currently not under production and is operating in a scaled back mode. The facility currently accepts clinker from Lehigh's other local facility located in Glens Falls and grinds the clinker into cement. The operation also includes a slag dryer. Treatment consists of neutralization of leachate generated at two onsite landfills. The system effluent will be permanently conveyed to sedimentation pond A, where it will be commingled with stormwater and cooling water before discharge via Outfall 001 to another wetland adjacent to the Hudson River Estuary. Additionally, Lehigh depends on quarry water for cooling needs. The non-contact cooling water is used on the roll press reducer, finish mill twinducer and mill bearings. Lehigh also maintains a cooling water intake structure in the Hudson River has an emergency water source. Lehigh has surface discharge to an unnamed tributary to the Hudson River, a Class D water.

The following changes to the permit are proposed: - Outfall 001 Landfill Leachate, Non-Contact Cooling Water and Stormwater: limits and monitoring requirements have been changed for pH, Solids Total Suspended, and Oil and Grease. - Outfall 01A and 01B Cement Kiln Dust (CKD) Landfill Leachate: these are new internal outfalls which are added to monitor the quality of leachate from the Alsen and Cemention CKD landfills following treatment (pH adjustment) and before discharge to Outfall 001. This outfall will then discharge treated leachate, stormwater, and cooling water from the sedimentation ponds. The internal outfalls will be used to obtain leachate quality information before possible dilution with the other substreams. Monitoring for Flow, pH, Arsenic Total, Chromium Total, Mercury Total, Nickel Total and Selenium Total, will be required at the internal outfalls. Outfall 004 stormwater from Kiln Dust: This previously planned outfall has been deleted as there are now no plans for its construction and discharge. Outfall 005 Cooling Water Intake: the cooling water intake is labeled as an outfall for DEC monitoring and coding purposes. River water intake flow will be required to be recorded and reported to DEC. This outfall is also for specifying requirements and a concentration limit for the water treatment chemical Betz Clam-Trol (Zebra Mussel control), for which monitoring is required. Also added to the permit are updated stormwater Best Management Practices, a Mercury Minimization Plan, Discharge Notification Act requirements, and Biological Monitoring Requirements in relation to the cooling water intake.
