Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 P/C/I SPDES - Surface Discharge
Article 15 Title 5 Stream Disturbance

Project is Located:

Fallsburgh, Sullivan County

Project Description:

The Department has made a tentative determination to approve this application for re-issuance and modification of a SPDES permit (#NY-0031658) for an existing surface discharge from the Raleigh Hotel (Outfall No. 001) with an initial maximum flow of 112,500 gallons per day (gpd) of treated sanitary wastewater to the Sheldrake Stream (Class B). The project includes phased redevelopment of an adjoining 161 + acre parcel, site of the former Heiden Hotel, with 236 new single-family and duplex residences with various amenities, internal roadways, stormwater management facilities, and construction of a new wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) with a design capacity of 137,000 gpd to provide tertiary treatment (total project area = 196.9 acres). The existing Raleigh Hotel WWTP will be abandoned following completion of construction of the new proposed WWTP, at which time the maximum permitted discharge flow from the new WWTP will increase to 137,000 gpd. The project will disturb approximately 30 linear feet of the Sheldrake Stream in order to construct Outfall 001 with rip-rap apron, and to excavate a utility trench for installation of new 6" diameter water main and new 4" diameter wastewater force main across the stream channel. The project is located on the east side of Heiden Road (County Route 161) at the intersection with Kiamesha Lake Road in the Town of Fallsburgh; a portion of the Raleigh Hotel site lies within the Town of Thompson. A draft permit is available for inspection and comment at the regional office.
