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 NY-0104566 pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 750-1.18 and 750-1.19, the Priority Ranking System known as New York State's Environmental Benefit Strategy (EBPS). This modification will also serve to renew the SPDES permit.

The facility is a wastewater Treatment plant for Parishville-Hopkinton Central School designed to treat 14,000 gallons per day (GPD). Wastewater is processed through septic tanks and sand filtration prior to being discharged to a tributary leading to the St. Regis River, West Branch, a Class C waterbody.

Changes to the existing permit include: Outfall 002, formerly associated with a remediation system which has been decommissioned and removed, will be deleted; Effluent limits have been added for Ammonia, Detergents/Surfactants, Phosphorus, and Oil & Grease; Permit pages have been revised to reflect current DEC format, nomenclature and the most recent general conditions.
