Applicant: Tri-Municipal Sewer Commission
PO Box 859
Wappingers Falls, NY 12590-0859
Facility: Tri-Municipal WWTP
171 Sheafe Rd
Wappingers Falls, NY 12590-
Application ID: 3-1346-00066/00002
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES
Project is Located: Poughkeepsie, Dutchess County
Project Description:

      The Department has prepared draft pages 2 and 3 of a draft modified SPDES Permit (SPDES #-0149209) and a 4-page Fact Sheet and has made a tentative determination to approve an application for a modification of the existing permit to expand the authorized discharge from the Tri-Municipal Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) by 0.375 million gallons per day (MGD). This would increase the discharge limit from the current 2.4 MGD to the proposed 2.775 MGD for treated effluent discharged to the Hudson River. The purpose of the increase is to provide sewer service to portions of the Phase 3-A area of the Town of Wappinger. The Tri-Municipal plant is located on Sheafe Road in the Town of Poughkeepsie on the east bank of the Hudson River. The Draft SPDES Permit pages and Fact Sheet are available for review at the addressed listed below.

     In order to provide this expanded sewer service to portions of the Town of Wappinger, a new sewer force main would be constructed under Wappingers Creek immediately adjacent to the existing force main. However, the applicant will not disturb the bed or banks of Wappingers Creek because the applicant will use "directional boring" to stay well under the bed of the Creek . This activity has already been determined to be eligible for Nationwide Permit #12 from the US Army Corps of Engineers and thus is also eligible for DEC's Statewide 401 Water Quality Certification.
