Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Groundwater Discharge

Project is Located:

Sanford, Broome County

Project Description:

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is proposing a renewal and Department Initiated Modification (DIM) to the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit (NY0244384), 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). The Superior Plus Energy Services-Deposit facility is a petroleum bulk storage facility. It discharges stormwater via Outfall 001 to a retention pond. The facility also discharges tank test water to the same retention pond via Outfall 01A. Stormwater and tank test water from the retention pond seeps to groundwater. The facility does not provide any treatment to stormwater. The facility is required to provide treatment to tank test water before wastewater is discharged to the retention pond when the pollutants' concentrations of the tank test water exceed their respective effluent limits stated in the SPDES permit. The facility does not directly discharge any wastewater to surface waters of the state.

The following changes to the permit are proposed: The permit type has been changed from surface to groundwater. Action levels for benzene, toluene, xylene, ethylbenzene, and total residual chlorine have been removed and replaced with new monitoring requirements and effluent limits for those parameters at Outfalls 001 and 01A. 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:
