Project Description:

The applicant has applied for an initial permit for the continued withdrawal of 800 gallons per minute of water from an on-site irrigation pond for golf course irrigation. The facility has been in operation for decades. 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.

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).

Schuyler County

Applicant:

Village of Watkins Glen
303 N Franklin St
Watkins Glen, NY 14891 -1202

Facility:

Project Seneca Regional Wastewater Facility
Boat Launch Rd - 1985 Ft S
Dix, NY

Application ID:

8-4424-00111/00002

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 11 Endangered/Threatened Species (Incidental Take)
Article 15 Title 5 Excavation & Fill in Navigable Waters
Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

Dix, Schuyler County

Project Description:

The applicant is proposing to construct a new regional wastewater treatment plant to serve both Watkins Glen and Montour Falls. The plant would be located on the east shore of the Chemung Canal (aka Old Barge Canal), approximately 3,000 feet south (upstream) of its confluence with Seneca Lake. The 8.6-acre site is also adjacent to the Catherine Creek Marsh Wildlife Management Area. Once constructed, the existing treatment plants in the villages of Watkins Glen and Montour Falls would be decommissioned.

The plant would have a design capacity of an average 1.2 million gallons per day. The project would also involve the construction of approximately 15,360 feet of new sewer force mains (5,860 feet in Watkins Glen and 9,500 feet in Montour Falls), and two new pump stations - one in Watkins Glen near the existing plant and one in Montour Falls at the site of the existing plant. The new plant's discharge point would be to the Chemung Canal at the plant site.

Work will involve permanent and temporary impacts to approximately 3.4 acres and 3.1 acres, respectively, of the regulated 100-foot adjacent area of state-regulated Freshwater Wetlands MF-1 (Class 1) for the entrance road, plant and forcemain construction.& Force-main crossings of the Chemung Canal and its tributaries by directional drilling are also proposed.

Approximately 4.5 acres of the plant construction site is located within 660 feet of an active bald eagle nest site. The remainder of the plant site is no closer than 340 feet from the nest site. Bald eagles are a state-listed threatened species and an Incidental Takings permit is being required for the project. A bald eagle "net conservation benefit" project has been proposed by the applicant as part of their application, which involves construction mitigation measures to minimize direct impacts to eagles and the acquisition and permanent protection of lands surrounding a bald eagle nest site in Moravia, New York, about 2 miles south of Owasco Lake.

The Department has made a tentative determination to issue a State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) permit under Article 17 of the Environmental Conservation Law for the proposed wastewater treatment plant and a draft SPDES permit has been prepared. As proposed the SPDES permit would allow the discharge of a monthly average of 1.2 million gallons per day of treated effluent to the Chemung Canal (Class C(T)). This tentative determination indicates that the discharge regulated under this statute is considered to satisfy regulatory standards for permit issuance, based on information available to the Department at this time. As a tentative determination, the Department seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance. As such, this tentative determination does not signify department approval for or endorsement of the activity for which a permit is sought or for the overall proposed project.
