Washington County

Applicant:

Hollingsworth & Vose Co
112 Washington St
East Walpole, MA 02032 -1098

Facility:

Hollingsworth & Vose-Easton Mill

Greenwich, NY 12834

Application ID:

5-5326-00004/00055

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 15 Title 15 Water Withdrawal Non-public

Project is Located:

Easton, Washington County

Project Description:

The applicant has applied for an initial permit for the continued withdrawal of 7.632 Million Gallons Per Day (GPD) of water from the Batten Kill River for operation of the Hollingsworth & Vose-Easton Mill facility. The facility uses water to manufacture paper-based filtration media. No changes in current operations from recent years 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).

Availability of Application Documents:

Filed application documents, and Department draft permits where applicable, are available for inspection during normal business hours at the address of the contact person. To ensure timely service at the time of inspection, it is recommended that an appointment be made with the contact person.
