Project Description:

The Department has made a tentative determination to approve an application for modification of an existing permit to discharge 0.92 million gallons per day (30 day arithmetic mean) of treated sanitary wastewater to the Cohocton River from the Town of Erwin Sewage Treatment Plant, located at Canada Road, in Painted Post. The treatment facility will be expanding with the construction of a new Sequence Batch Reactor (SBR) tank. The proposed changes to the permit include an increase in the flow rate to 1.75 million gallons per day and the replacement of the biological oxygen demand limit with a carbonaceous biological oxygen demand limit after completion of construction. In addition, the draft permit proposes a compliance schedule for infiltration and inflow improvements and design work for the plant head works facilities. The draft permit is available for review and comment at the Region 8 Office in Avon.
