Project is Located:

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 (NY0007242), 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). This is a re-notice of the Notice of Intent to Modify published in the Environmental Notice Bulletin on 01/05/2011.

Lehigh Northeast Cement Company - Cementon Terminal (Lehigh) is a cement manufacturing facility with a design flow of 1.2 mgd. Lehigh is currently operating in a scaled back mode. The facility currently accepts clinker from Lehigh's other facility located in Glens Falls and grinds the clinker into cement. The operation also includes a slag dryer.

Treatment consists of neutralization of leachate generated at two onsite landfills. The treated leachate is conveyed to sedimentation ponds where it is co-mingled with stormwater and noncontact cooling water before discharged via Outfall 001. Lehigh depends on quarry water for cooling needs but maintains a cooling water intake structure in the Hudson River as an emergency water source. Outfall 001 is currently authorized to discharge to an unnamed tributary to the Hudson River, a Class A water, by an administrative consent order.

The following changes to the permit are proposed: -Mercury limits and a Mercury Minimization Program have been added. -Outfall 001 is being relocated to the Hudson River main stem. New Effluent limits and/or monitoring are proposed for a number of parameters including Whole Effluent Toxicity Testing. -Internal Waste Streams 01A and 01B have been added. 01A and 01B are tributary to Outfall 001 and will be monitoring before admixuture with other wastewaters. Parameters will be monitored, some with limits, include: flow, pH and mercury. -Interim limits applicable to Outfall 001 and internal waste streams 01A and 01B are included in a consent order together with a schedule of compliance. -Outfall 004 has been deleted. It was never constructed. -Outfall 005 changes include restrictions on use of the cooling water intake and deletion of the zebra mussel control program authorization. -New Best Management Practices requirements are included plus updated permit forms incorporating the latest general conditions.
