Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 15 Title 15 Water Withdrawal Non-public

Project is Located:

Barre, Orleans County

Project Description:

The applicant has applied for an initial permit for the continued withdrawal of 9.0 Million Gallons Per Day (Million GPD) of water from an open pit pond for operation of the Wilson Quarry Facility. The excavation and aggregate processing facility has been in operation in recent years. No changes in current operations are proposed. The Department has determined that the Facility is eligible for an Initial Permit under Section 15-1501.9 of the Environmental Conservation Law. Initial Permits are limited to existing facilities for existing water withdrawals over 100,000 GPD which were properly reported to the Department prior to February 15, 2012. Section 15-501.9 requires the Department to issue Initial Water Withdrawal Permits for the reported volume.

The Department has determined that the issuance of "initial permits" under ECL section 15-501.9 as implemented by 6 NYCRR 601.7 is a ministerial action and therefore subject to the Type II exemption set out in 6 NYCRR 617.5(c)(19).

Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 15 Title 5 Dam

Project is Located:

Marion, Wayne County

Project Description:

Seneca Foods Corporation proposes to decommission their Marion wastewater treatment plant on Pembroke Road, which formerly treated food processing plant effluent. The closure includes breaching the berms of two treatment lagoons, demolition and filing of on-site structures, and modifying the regulated dam to bring it up to state standards, including conducting tree removal and maintenance, modification of the drain, fill in an ephemeral stream, creation of a new spill way, and filling on the south side of the dam. The project will require an Article 15 Dam Safety Permit, and a Notice of Intent form to obtain coverage under the Stormwater General Permit for Construction due to the need to disturb 18 acres. The file is available for review and comment at NYSDEC Region 8. The SPDES permit will not be discontinued as part of this action; that will be a separate permit action to be requested after the closure is completed.

Availability of Application Documents:
