Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Hamilton, Madison 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 (NY0020672), 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).

The Village of Hamilton Water Pollution Control Plant has a design flow of 0.85 MGD. Treatment includes screening (including mechanical bar screen) and microstrainer, grit removal, shredding, settling (primary clarifier), secondary treatment, single-stage activated sludge process with nitrification, final settling (clarifier), and sand filtration, and (sodium hypochlorite) chlorination followed by dechlorination of the effluent. All sludge is directed to holding tanks. Once sludge fraction is recycled, polymer is added to second fraction that is dewatered using a belt filter press, and a third fraction is directed to natural drying beds. Dewatered sludge is disposed at a landfill.

The following changes to the permit are proposed: - Effluent limits have been updated for Ammonia, Total Phosphorous and Total Residual Chlorine (TRC). - A schedule of Compliance for TRC has been added. - Chesapeake Bay Strategy Action Levels have been added. The facility has surface discharge to Payne Brook, a class C water.
