Application ID:


Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Amherst, Erie County

Project Description:

The Department has prepared a draft modified SPDES Permit (NY0202631) and made a tentative determination to approve the permit renewal for Outfall 007 from the Village of Williamsville sanitary sewer collection system. The outfall is to Ellicott Creek with a Class and Standard of B. Outfall 007 is a Type 1 Sanitary Sewer Overflow and is prohibited from discharging except in emergency situations when there is no feasible alternative, and the permittee complies with the reporting requirements in the permit. The applicant also proposes to modify the permit to delete six Outfalls (001, 002, 003, 004, 005 and 008) from the permit as they have been sealed and can no longer discharge from the Village's sanitary sewer collection system. The village has been able to eliminate these discharges to Ellicott Creek by implementing a concerted infiltration and inflow removal and pipe replacement program. The Department is seeking 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.
