Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 15 Title 15 Water Withdrawal Non-public

Project is Located:

Paris, Oneida County

Project Description:

The applicant has applied for an initial permit for the continued withdrawal of 158,400 gallons per minute of water from an artesian well for cooling purposes. The facility has been in operation in its current configuration since 1989. 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).

St Lawrence County

Applicant:

Town of Fine
4078 St Hwy 3
Star Lake, NY 13690 -0238

Facility:

Fine - T Wanakena Sewer District
54 S Shore Rd, E of Skate Creek
Wanakena, NY 13639

Application ID:

6-4036-00002/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Fine, St Lawrence County

Project Description:

The DEC received a request from the permittee to modify an existing State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) permit issued to the Town of Fine for the Wanakena Sewer District # 1. The department reviewed the request and drafted a revised permit. The proposed permit differs from the existing permit as follows: elimination of the Phosphorus concentration limit and remove Outfall 002 as an emergency sanitary sewer overflow (SSO). All other permit limitations and requirements remain in effect.

Prior to 2009, the district had a combined sanitary and storm sewer system. Since the 2009 storm sewer collection system installation, the I/I has significantly reduced, as well as the average monthly flows to the wastewater treatment plant. Outfall 002 has been permanently capped and is inoperable, therefore eliminating the need for the SSO. In addition, Phosphorus will continue to be monitored with a loading limit only. The average annual Phosphorus loading has remained at or below the 0.08 lbs/day limit for many years.
