Project is Located:

Elmira, Chemung County

Project Description:

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is proposing a Department Initiated Modification and renewal to the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES Permit NY0036986), pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 750-1.18.

The DEC has adopted the Phase II Watershed Implementation Plan for New York Susquehanna and Chemung River Basins and Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load (Phase II WIP) to satisfy the requirements for meeting the nutrient and sediment loads outlined in the Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). EPA's objective is for watershed jurisdictions to implement the actions necessary to achieve the nutrient and sediment allocations by 2025 and to have controls in place by 2017 that will achieve 60% of the necessary reductions from 2009 loads. These permits include Water Quality Based Effluent Limits for Total Phosphorus 12 month load and Total Nitrogen 12 month load based upon the 2017 Interim Waste Load Allocations in the TMDL. These permits also include monitoring requirements for Total Phosphorus, Total Nitrogen, Nitrate, Nitrite, and Total Kjeldahl Nitrogen (TKN), as well as footnotes regarding the implementation schedule and limit calculations for the Total Phosphorus 12 month load and Total Nitrogen 12 month load limits. The final Water Quality Based Effluent Limits for these parameters, based on the Waste Load Allocations in the TMDL, shall become effective January 1, 2025. This permit also includes a phased aggregate limit for total nitrogen delivered to the Chesapeake Bay on a rolling annual total basis from all significant permits located within the Chesapeake Bay watershed, as described in the Fact Sheet and in accordance with the Phase II WIP.

As part of this modification, the General Permit Requirements section has been updated in accordance with DEC and EPA agreement and the Recording, Reporting and Additional Permit Requirements have been updated in accordance with State and Federal Regulations.

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is proposing a Department Initiated Modification to the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES Permit NY0025721), pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 750-1.18. This is a renotice of the Notice of Intent to Modify published in the Environmental Notice Bulletin on 12/7/2011.

The DEC has adopted the Phase II Watershed Implementation Plan for New York Susquehanna and Chemung River Basins and Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load (Phase II WIP) to satisfy the requirements for meeting the nutrient and sediment loads outlined in the Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

This permit also includes a phased aggregate limit for total nitrogen delivered to the Chesapeake Bay on a rolling annual total basis from all significant permits located within the Chesapeake Bay watershed, as described in the Fact Sheet and in accordance with the Phase II WIP.

In addition, the DEC has increased the Action Level of Iron from 0.3 mg/l to 1.0 mg/l, due to the technology to be employed by the permittee for phosphorus removal. The action level of 1.0 mg/l is in compliance with the upcoming guidance value for iron, and does not constitute backsliding in accordance with 40 CFR 122.44 (l) in that there is (1) both newly discovered information (repeal of the standard) and (2) that the permittee has not been able to comply with the permit limit (or would not be able to comply if they must also comply with the phosphorus limit) and the limit was based on a federal standard or state water quality standard and the standard has been changed.

As part of this modification, the General Permit Requirements section has been updated in accordance with DEC and EPA agreement and the Recording, Reporting and Additional Permit Requirements have been updated in accordance with State and Federal Regulations.

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Erwin, Steuben County

Project Description:

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is proposing a Department Initiated Modification to the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit NY0023906, pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 750-1.18.

The DEC has adopted the Phase II Watershed Implementation Plan for New York Susquehanna and Chemung River Basins and Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load (Phase II WIP) to satisfy the requirements for meeting the nutrient and sediment loads outlined in the Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). EPA's objective is for watershed jurisdictions to implement the actions necessary to achieve the nutrient and sediment allocations by 2025 and to have controls in place by 2017 that will achieve 60% of the necessary reductions from 2009 loads. These permits include Water Quality Based Effluent Limits for Total Phosphorus 12 month load and Total Nitrogen 12 month load based upon the 2017 Interim Waste Load Allocations in the TMDL. These permits also include monitoring requirements for Total Phosphorus, Total Nitrogen, Nitrate, Nitrite, and Total Kjeldahl Nitrogen (TKN), as well as footnotes regarding the implementation schedule and limit calculations for the Total Phosphorus 12 month load and Total Nitrogen 12 month load limits. The final Water Quality Based Effluent Limits for these parameters, based on the Waste Load Allocations in the TMDL, shall become effective January 1, 2025. This permit also includes a phased aggregate limit for total nitrogen delivered to the Chesapeake Bay on a rolling annual total basis from all significant permits located within the Chesapeake Bay watershed, as described in the Fact Sheet and in accordance with the Phase II WIP.

As part of this modification, the General Permit Requirements section has been updated in accordance with DEC and EPA agreement and the Recording, Reporting and Additional Permit Requirements have been updated in accordance with State and Federal Regulations.
