Applicant:

Huntley Power LLC
211 Carnegie Center
Princeton, NJ 08540

Facility:

Huntley Steam Generating Station
3500 River Rd
Tonawanda, NY 14150

Application ID:

9-1464-00130/00003

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Tonawanda, Erie County


Project Description:

The Department is proposing to renew and modify the SPDES permit for the Huntley Generating Station. The permit is being modified pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 704.5 and 40 CFR 125 - Subpart J. These regulations require that the location, design, construction, and capacity of cooling water intake structures reflect the best technology available (BTA) for minimizing adverse environmental impact. The Huntley Station is a coal fired facility that began operation 1916. The only units remaining in operation, units 67 and 68, have an electrical generating capacity of 400 MW. A maximum of 375 million gallons of condenser cooling water per day is withdrawn from the Niagara River through a shoreline intake. In 1999, the traveling intake screens for these units were replaced with modified Ristroph traveling screens designed to minimize impingement mortality to fish. A low stress fish return system was also installed to return impinged fish to the Niagara River. These existing intake technologies have reduced impingement mortality by at least 90 percent. The current modification requires the facility to address the entrainment of aquatic organisms by installing and operating variable speed pumps on units 67 and 68. In addition, the facility will be required, through a condition of the modified SPDES permit, to operating at less than 15 percent of its electric generating capacity. The station is located along the upper Niagara River, approximately 1.5 miles downstream of the head of Grand Island.
