Facility:

Richmondville, NY 12149

Application ID:

4-4340-00005/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Richmondville, Schoharie County

Project Description:

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is proposing a Department Initiated Modification (DIM) to the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit issued to the Richmondville Sewage Treatment Plant (SPDES No. NY 002 2519), pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 750-1.18, and 750-1.19, the Priority Ranking System known as New York State's Environmental Benefit Permit Strategy (EBPS).

The facility has a surface water discharge of treated sanitary wastewater to Cobleskill Creek, a class C water, with a design flow of 200,000 gallons per day. Treatment includes screening, grit removal, an oxidation ditch with activated sludge, settling, and seasonal disinfection.

The following changes to the permit are proposed: addition of a short-term monitoring requirement for total dissolved solids (TDS). Results of this monitoring would be used to determine the need to add a TDS limit to the permit.

The permit has also been updated to include the most up to date regulatory language and correct typographical errors in the current permit including: the latitude and longitude of Outfall 001; the units of the permitted flow rate; and the mass-based effluent limits for ultimate oxygen demand (UOD) and total suspended solids (TSS).
