Project Description:

The Department has made a tentative determination to approve this application for a modification to a permit for an existing discharge of 7,500 gallons per day (gpd) of treated sanitary wastewater into Tributary #4 of Blue Mountain Lake (Museum Brook), a Class "D" waterbody. The present discharge is from a secondary level, sand filter, wastewater treatment plant located on the east side of Routes 28N and 30 across from the Adirondack Museum building complex. The applicant proposes to construct an expanded sand filter treatment system at a new location on the west side of Routes 28N and 30 and to the north of Maple Lodge Road. A monthly average flow of 6,000 gpd will be treated and discharged through a new outfall (Outfall 002) to Tributary #4, approximately 1,000 feet upstream from Blue Mountain Lake. The present sand filter treatment system and associated outfall (Outfall 001) will be taken out of service upon completion of the new system. The application and draft permit (SPDES No. NY-024 0273) can be reviewed by making an appointment with the contact person. The Adirondack Park Agency (APA) has also reviewed this project and will issue an amendment to their permit for this facility (APA Permit No. 98-74a).
