Project is Located:

Staten Island, Richmond County

Project Description:

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is proposing a Department Initiated Modification (DIM) to the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit (NY0200484), pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 750-1.18, and 750-1.19, the Priority Ranking System known as New York State's Environmental Benefit Permit Strategy (EBPS). This modification will also serve to renew the SPDES permit, the term of which was extended under the State Administrative Procedures Act (SAPA).

Clean Water of New York, Inc., facility discharges, via Outfall 001, treated wastewater from reprocessed recovered fuel oil for waste oil and cleaning operation of tank barges. Treatment consists of oil/water separator, air flotation, activated clay, and activated carbon. The following changes to the permit are proposed: Specific parameter effluent limits have been reduced, and/or changed. Reduced effluent limit of each individual PCB Aroclor as well as addition of a PCB minimization plan. A compliance schedule has been added for Phenol and PCBs Aroclors. The compliance schedule for specific parameters has been removed as monitoring data shows levels below their respective new effluent limit. Quarterly monitoring for specific parameters has been added. The permit includes updated forms and the latest general conditions. Details of changes are specified in the draft permit and fact sheet which may be viewed and printed from the Department web site at:
