Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 15 Title 15 Water Withdrawal Non-public

Project is Located:

Greenport, Columbia County

Project Description:

The applicant proposes to develop a groundwater withdrawal system capable of producing a combined maximum water withdrawal of 285,120 gallons per day (gpd) from 8 primary bedrock water supply wells and 2 backup bedrock water supply wells. The purpose of the proposed withdrawal is for use as process water at an aquaculture facility. The facility operation is expected to require an average water demand of 100 to 175 gallons per minute (gpm), which is equivalent to 144,000 to 252,000 gpd. Estimated peak demand for the facility is 250 gpm, equating to a peak daily demand of about 360,000 gpd. The facility proposes to meet it's process water demands using a combination of an existing public water supply service connection and the proposed groundwater withdrawal system. The process water will be used to fill fish holding tanks, circulate water through holding tanks in an open-loop system, and provide continuous pass-through water flow within the aquaculture system.
