Schoharie County

Facility:

Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 15 Title 15 Water Withdrawal Non-public

Project is Located:

Schoharie, Schoharie County

Project Description:

The applicant has applied for an initial permit for the continued withdrawal of 1,410 gallons per minute of water from a wash pond and well for washing aggregates, dust suppression and potable water. The facility has been in operation since at least 1988. 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 gallons per day 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).
