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 NY0029726), 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 Village of Penn Yan Sewage Treatment Plant discharges treated sewage through Outfall 001 to the Keuka Lake Outlet, a class C(T) water. The sewage collection system consists of separate sewers. Treatment at the facility includes wastewater screening in a grit removal unit, primary settling in two primary clarifiers, aeration in a rotating biological contactors system, flocculation via chemical mixing, and final settling in two secondary clarifiers. Sludge is pumped to a thickener, then routed to sludge digestion. Overflows are recycled to the grit removal unit. Digested sludge is split into either a reed bed wetland system or to drying beds. Sludge from the reed beds is used in road margins. Liquid sludge is disposed at a wastewater treatment facility. Dried Sludge is disposed at a landfill.

The following changes to the permit are proposed: All mass and concentration parameter limits rounded to two significant figures. Monthly Average monitoring requirements were added for specific parameters; Ammonia limits were changed; Disinfection requirements were added, as well as a schedule of compliance to meet the requirements; Whole Effluent Toxicity testing limits were changed; A Schedule of Submittal was added for Infiltration and Inflow; A Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan was 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: http://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/6054.html.
