Project Description:

The department proposes to modify the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) as follows:

     The reporting of theraputic chemicals is modified so that all instances of treatment will be on a new table appended to the Discharge Monitoring Report (DMR). This will permit the reporting of actual concentrations, dates, and duration of treatment and the resulting concentration of the treatment chemical in the receiving waters based on actual flow.

     Monitoring information has been updated to include the location of flow monitoring for hatchery flow, stream flow, and treated hatchery flow. These flows are used in the calculation of in-stream concentration of theraputic chemical.

     The reporting periods have been extended from 28 days to 60 days.

Project Description:

The Wayne County Water and Sewer Authority (WCWSA) has proposed to construct and new regional sewage treatment plant in the Town of Wolcott immediately west of Ford Road and approximately 600 feet northwest of the junction of Caywood Road and Chapman Corners Road.

The new treatment plant will initially have a design flow of 500,000 gallons per day(GPD) with a possible expansion to 1,000,000 GPD. Phase 1 involves flows from the Butlaer Correctional Facility and the Red Creek school and a residential area. Phase 2 could involve flow from the Village of Red Creek and the Village of Fairhaven.
