Application ID:

3-3338-00025/00003

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation

Project is Located:

Minisink, Orange County

Project Description:

The applicant proposes to modify their existing Mined Land Reclamation permit (DEC No. 3-3338-00025/00003) to include the use of a newly constructed access road allowing Ford Farm Mine truck traffic direct access to NYS Route 284 from the operating 5.6-acre shale mine centrally located within the 164-acre Ford Farm site. The proposed modification would also: allow use of used bedding material (mixture of sand & manure) from the Ford Farm dairy operation to supplement site topsoil resources for reclamation of the mine; allow loading and hauling operations (currently restricted to Monday through Friday operations) to be conducted on Saturdays; and designate an area within the mine for the stockpiling of excavated materials. Note that the proposed access road has already been constructed as an activity exempt from DEC Mined Land Reclamation permitting requirements. No new ground disturbance is proposed at the 5.6-acre mine, no new equipment is proposed, no increase in the rate of production is proposed, and no change to the final reclamation plan is proposed. Final reclamation will return the mine site to agricultural use. The proposed access road to the mine is located on the southeast side of NYS Route 284, approximately 1000 feet north of Hortons Road, in the Town of Minisink, Orange County.

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Ulster, Ulster County

Project Description:

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has received an application for a modification of the State Pollution Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit, pursuant to 6NYCRR Part 750, to decrease the design capacity of the existing sand filter system from the currently permitted discharge of 18,400 gallons per day (gpd) to a proposed discharge of 4,050 gpd of treated sanitary waste water to Esopus Creek, Water Index No. H-171, a Class B(T) waterbody.

This property has been recently purchased by Five Star Realty Holdings L.L.C., and the planned use of the property is for an automotive dealership which will replace the motel and resturant. The system will be modified to handle sanitary wastewater, carwash rinse water, water treatment backwash and reserve flow. Changes to the permit include a flow reduction from 18,400 gpd to 4,050 gpd, removal of loading limits from CBOD5 & TSS, and the addition of limits for oil and grease, and MBAS. Action levels for arsenic, cadmium & zinc and a monitor-only requirement for temperature will also be added.

DEC has made a tentative determination to modify this permit. A draft SPDES permit with DEC proposed effluent limits and monitoring requirements is available for review at the DEC Region 3 headquarters in New Paltz. Comments on the permit must be submitted in writing to the contact person listed below.
