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 sand filter system from the currently permitted discharge of 18,400 gallons per day (gpd) to a proposed discharge of 4,050 gpd of treated sanitary waste water to Esopus Creek, Water Index No. H-171, a Class B(T) waterbody.

This property has been recently purchased by Five Star Realty Holdings L.L.C., and the planned use of the property is for an automotive dealership which will replace the motel and restaurant. The system will be modified to handle sanitary wastewater, carwash rinse water, water treatment backwash and reserve flow. Changes to the permit include a flow reduction from 18,400 gpd to 4,050 gpd, removal of loading limits from CBOD5 & TSS, and the addition of limits for oil and grease, and MBAS. Action levels for arsenic, cadmium & zinc and a monitor-only requirement for temperature will also be added.

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.
