The applicant proposes a new discharge up to 60,000 gallons per day of treated process water to the Hudson River, a Class C waterway, from a hydrodemolition water collection and treatment system located at a bridge reconstruction project along the I-787 Clinton Avenue Interchange in the City of Albany, Albany County, New York. The applicant plans to operate two hydrodemolition systems during the construction process. The two treatment systems discharge to existing storm sewer catch basins leading to the Hudson River. The project uses City water and no chemicals are added during the process. A filtering system will be employed prior to discharge of the water.

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 proposed project.
A draft permit is available for inspection and comment at the Region 4 office.
