Application ID:

7-5030-00016/00005

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Ithaca, Tompkins 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 (NY0244261), 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).

Therm Incorporated focuses on various machine processes. The facility specializes in the preparation of airfoil components for the aerospace and industrial turbine industry. No process wastewater is discharged through surface water outfalls. Outfalls discharge groundwater and stormwater runoff only. The facility has discharge to a drainage ditch tributary to Six Mile Creek, a class C water.

The following changes to the permit are proposed: Outfall 001: Monitoring for two parameters has been removed and will be monitored at Outfall 01A. Water Quality Based Effluent Limit for Total Iron was increased, as a result of a new water quality standard. Outfall 01A: Monitoring and limits for parameters have been removed since they have not been detected in the effluent during the last three year period and beyond. The monitoring frequency for the remaining parameters has been reduced from Monthly to Quarterly. These parameters are either consistently below limits or have rarely been detected. The Tetrachloroethylene limit has been retained. A quarterly total suspended solids limit was added to the permit based on best professional judgement.

Best Management Practices plan requirement has been added. The monitoring locations page has been updated. Discharge Notifications Act page has been added. The recording, reporting and additional monitoring requirements page has been updated.
