Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Woodbury, Orange County


Project Description:

The Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination to issue a renewal to State Pollutant Discharge Elimination Systems (SPDES) permit (NY#0027901) for the surface discharge of 6.0MGD of treated wastewater to the Ramapo River, a class C water. This is a re-notice updating the Notice of Complete Application published in the Environmental Notice Bulletin on 06/15/2017.

The Orange Co. Sewer District #1 - Harriman Sewage Treatment Plant sends treated sewage through a junction box (outfall 01A) before being discharged through Outfalls 001 and 002. Treatment at the facility consists of three separate treatment trains, which share screening and grit removal. The treatment trains consist of activated sludge clarifiers, aeration basins and secondary clarifiers, sand filters, chlorine contact tank with dechlorination, post aeration oxidation ditches, and primary clarifiers. Effluent from all three trains are combined in Outfall 01A before discharge. Sludge is sent to sludge thickener tanks and sludge dewatering filter belt presses before it is hauled to a disposal facility.

DEC proposes to incorporate the following modifications to this permit: new/revised limits to UOD, TDS, ammonia, chlorines, ammonia (as N), chlorine, copper and zinc; addition of mercury limit and Mercury Minimization Program; addition of summer UOD monitoring; addition of phosphorus monitoring; addition of schedules of compliance to meet limits for TDS, chlorides, TRC, and ammonia; addition of schedule of submittal to install and monitor a Ramapo streamgage; reduction of total phenolics action level to practical quantitation level; three month monitoring of hardness, chloroform, endosulfate I, and bis(2-ethlylhexyl)phthalate to determine need for limits; addition of whole effluent toxicity testing; simplification of permit monitoring requirements by requesting sampling at junction box instead of outfalls; deletion of outfall summation; and, updated forms incorporating the latest general conditions. The draft permit and fact sheet may be viewed and printed from the Department web site at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/6054.html.

Project Description:

The department has prepared a draft modification to the Title V permit for Par Pharmaceutical that will allow Par to manufacture a new product on the facility's existing 48" Accela Coata tablet coater (emission sources COAT4), which is part of emission unit 0-0000T.

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 P/C/I SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Lumberland, Sullivan County


Project Description:

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has received an application for re-issuance of an expired State Pollution Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit, pursuant to 6NYCRR Part 750, for the discharge of 30,000 gallons per day (gpd) of treated sanitary wastewater via outfall 001 to an unnamed intermittent tributary of Mill Brook [Water Index No. D-16-2, Class B(T)]. In addition, the previously permitted subsurface discharge of 2,100 gpd via outfall 002 is no longer required and, therefore, will be removed from and will not be authorized under the re-issued permit. Based on the flow and type of treatment, the facility is considered a State Non-significant Minor Private/Commercial/Institutional (PCI) facility, Discharge Class 02 and a monthly "Wastewater Facility Operation Report" is required.

A draft SPDES permit with DEC proposed effluent limits and monitoring requirements is available for review at DEC Region 3 headquarters in New Paltz. DEC seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance. Substantive comments on these permits or requests for a hearing or both must be submitted in writing to the contact person listed below.
