Article 15 Title 5 Stream Disturbance

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 P/C/I SPDES- Groundwater Discharge

Project is Located:

Kortright, Delaware County


Project Description:

The applicant proposes to construct an expansion to the Annex site where the primary raised system of sanitary wastewater fields will be constructed. Construction involves directional drilling of force main under Betty Brook and within the adjacent area of freshwater wetland HO-20. The expansion also entails the modification of the existing SPDES permit to delete 2 outfalls that no longer exist and add a groundwater outfall and a surface water outfall. There will be a temporary impact to the adjacent area of the wetland for temporary construction areas. The construction is part of the NYCDEP upgrade program. The department has made a tentative determination to issue a permit for a State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) permit 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 project. A draft permit is available for review and comment at the address below.
