Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation

Project is Located:

Minisink, Orange County

Project Description:

The applicant proposes to expand an existing 21 acre sand and gravel mine by 1.45 acres, increasing the total life of mine area to 22.45 acres on the 39.3 acre property. The proposed modification would also add processing as an authorized activity by the addition of a new combination crushing & screening plant with a maximum throughput capacity of 140 ton per hour (tph), and the modification would also lower the depth of the proposed mine floor by approximately 15-20 feet and re-configure final reclamation contours. A total of 638,000 cubic yards of material will be removed from the site in four phases over an approximate 20 year period. Reclamation of mined areas will proceed concurrently with mining operations and final reclamation will return mined areas to agricultural use.

Facility:

Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 P/C/I SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Cortlandt, Westchester County

Project Description:

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has received an application for a modification of the State Pollution Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit, pursuant to 6NYCRR Part 750, to decrease the design capacity of the existing Valeria Sewer Treatment Plant from the currently permitted discharge of 75,000 gallons per day (gpd) to a proposed discharge of 56,000 gpd of treated sanitary waste water to Dickerson Creek, a tributary of Furnace Brook (Water Index No. H-44-6), a Class C stream.

The original intent in establishing the design flow at 75,000 gpd was to allow approximately 20,000 gpd of reserve capacity to be available to the Town of Cortlandt. As the Town of Cortlandt no longer requires this reserve capacity, the permitee is seeking the reduction in the STP design flow as described above to serve 228 residential units with a combined total of 649 bedrooms (which includes the 147-unit Valeria Townhouse Development that was subject to a Environmental Impact Statement, accepted as final on July 7, 2004 by the Town of Cortlandt Planning Board, serving as SEQR lead agency, supporting the issuance of the original SPDES Permit by DEC).

DEC has made a tentative determination to modify this permit. A draft SPDES permit with DEC proposed effluent limits and monitoring requirements is available for review at the DEC Region 3 headquarters in New Paltz. DEC seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance. Substantive comments on the permit or requests for hearing or both must be submitted in writing to the contact person listed below.

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.
