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 NY0060992, 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 facility discharges treated wastewater via Outfall 001 to Fishkill Creek, a class B water. Treatment at the facility consists of: Bar screen, primary clarifiers, aeration basins, secondary clarifiers, and chlorine disinfection system. The following changes to the permit are proposed: Coordinates for Outfall 001 have been updated; Sample type for flow has been updated to recorder; Influent sampling for pH, settleable solids, and temperature has been removed; A Water Quality Based Effluent Limit review was performed, resulting in continuation of the current effluent limits for specific parameters; A total residual chlorine effluent limit has been added with an interim limit while upgrades to the disinfection system are completed in accordance with the schedule of compliance.

As a result of the EBPS full technical review, a new five-year term is proposed. The permit includes updated forms and the latest general conditions. Details of changes are specified in the draft permit and statement of basis which may be viewed and printed from the Department web site at:
