Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Huntington, Suffolk County

Project Description:

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (Department) is proposing a Department Initiated Modification (DIM) to the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit NY0005941, pursuant to 6NYCRR part 750-1.18, and 750-1.19, the Priority Ranking system known as NYS Environmental Benefit Permit Strategy. This modification will also serve to renew the SPDES permit, the term of which was extended under the State Administrative Procedures Act (SAPA).

The facility is an existing power generating facility located on the northern shore of the Long Island Sound, consisting of four oil and/or gas fired steam-electric generating units which each have a maximum net generating capacity of 363 megawatts (MW), for a station total of 1,452 MW. The facility uses a once-through cooling system to withdraw a maximum of 1,600 million gallons per day (MGD) from Long Island Sound for cooling water (926 MGD) and dilution pumps (713 MGD). The water withdrawals result in the impingement and entrainment of millions of aquatic organisms on an annual basis including eggs, larvae and juvenile fish and macroinvertebrate species, including a substantial number of horseshoe crabs.

The following changes to the permit are proposed: Best Technology Available (BTA) measures to reduce impacts to aquatic resources have been added; Short-Term High Intensity Monitoring (STHIM) has been added to determine if water quality limits are needed at some of the outfalls that have limited sampling data for copper, zinc and phenols; Whole Effluent Toxicity (WET) chronic action levels has been added due to the presence of water treatment chemicals and metals in the effluent; and statewide multiple discharge variance (MDV) for mercury has been added. Permit pages and conditions have been updated, renumbered and reordered, and reflect current permit language, Department guidance, format and nomenclature. Details of changes are specified in the draft permit and fact sheets.

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.
