Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Surface Discharge
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

Cortlandt, Westchester County

Project Description:

The SPDES permit for Indian Point Energy Center Units 2 and 3 was the subject of a previous notice for a proposed modification by the DEC in 2003 to require the installation of the Best Technology Available to reduce the impacts from facility's cooling water intake structure. The proposed modification was the subject of an adjudicatory proceeding and the modification was not issued. The SPDES permit includes a reference to a January 9, 2017 agreement between the Department, the permittee and others for both Units 2 and 3 to shut down by 2021. This Commitment represents the best technology available for cooling water intake structures taking into consideration the expected time frame to design, manufacture, and install alternative solutions (e.g. closed-cycle cooling, wedgewire screens). The permit also includes the addition of a condition related to the thermal discharge by allowing for a mixing a zone not to exceed 75 acres. Limits on the conventional industrial discharges are not significantly changed from the previous permit. The Section 401 Water Quality Certificate for Units 2 and 3 was the subject of a Notice of Denial by the Department on April 2, 2010, obviated by the January 9, 2017 agreement including the proposed shutdown of the Units by 2021 (again, subject to the conditions provided therein), which together with the other requirements of the SPDES permit assures compliance with applicable New York State water quality standards and criteria. The full notice can be viewed at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/enb/20170201_not3.html.
