Permit(s) Applied for:
Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 P/C/I SPDES - Surface Discharge
Project is Located:
Aurora, Erie County
The Department has prepared a draft permit and made a tentative determination to re-issue and modify the parkwide SPDES permit # NY0102679 for fifteen existing sanitary wastewater treatment systems throughout the park and a new oil water separator at a maintenance building. Four of the existing systems are closed with no immediate plans to reopen. Of the remaining eleven, eight are surface discharges with approval to discharge up to 8,600 gallons per day (gpd) to tributary 11 of the East Branch of Cazenovia Creek. The three groundwater discharge systems can discharge up to 1,800 gpd. An oil water separator is proposed for construction at the maintenance building, which would have a limit of 200 gpd surface discharge to tributary 11. The Department has made a tentative determination to approve this application. As a tentative determination, the Department is seeking public comment on the application 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. A draft permit is available for review.
