Application ID:


Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge
Article 15 Title 15 Long Island Well

Project is Located:

North Hempstead, Nassau County

Project Description:

The applicant proposes to discharge up to 550,000 gallons per day of groundwater drawn to dewater the ground to allow the construction of an upgrade and expansion of the existing wastewater treatment plant. Currently, the dewatering effluent is being processed in the headworks of the wastewater treatment plant to be processed prior to discharge, via the plant's existing discharge point, into the Manhasset Bay. The applicant has requested that the groundwater be processed separately, with settling tank and oil-water separator devices, prior to its being added to the effluent side of the plant discharge system for ultimate disposal at the same existing discharge point. The change will also require a minor modification to the existing Long Island Well, dewatering permit. The facility is located at 263 East Shore Rd., in Great Neck Village, NCTM # Sect 2, Block 349, lot 11.

The Department has made a tentative determination to issue a modified permit for a State Pollutant Discharged Elimination System and a Long Island Well permit under Article 17 and Article 15 respectively, 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 the permit is sought or for the overall proposed project.

Refer to the application by the application number listed above and SPDES # NY0026999
