Notice of Availability for Comment - Renewal of State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFO) General Permit
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) proposes to issue a renewal of SPDES CAFO General Permit GP-0-09-001. Upon issuance, this general permit will be an interim general permit, replacing the expiring permit, GP-0-09-001, which became effective on July 1, 2009, was modified on July 29, 2013 and expires on June 30, 2014. NYS DEC elects to issue an interim general permit, with no changes, in order to devote sufficient time to work with a diverse stakeholder group to consider potential future changes to the ECL CAFO general permit. The general permit (GP-0-14-001) will be effective on July 1, 2014 for a limited time period. The interim general permit will authorize the operation and construction of a CAFO that is defined in the New York Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) §17-0105 (16), Title 6 of the Codes, Rules and Regulations of the State of New York (6 NYCRR), Part 750-1.2(a) and Appendix A of GP-0-14-001. Owners or operators of existing CAFOs with coverage under GP-0-09-001 shall be covered by the interim general permit. The Draft General Permit and Fact Sheet are available on the NYS DEC website at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/55368.html.
State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR) Determination: Project is not subject to SEQR because it is a Type II action.
