Application ID: 4-0124-00001/00057
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES
Project is Located: Coeymans, Albany County
Project Description:

The Department has made a tentative decision to modify the existing State Pollutant Discharge Elimination Sytem (SPDES) permit for the discharge of a varying amount of wastewater into two unnamed tributaries (Class C), Mosher Brook (Class C) and Coeymans Creek (Class C(TS)) as follows: The temperature limit for Outfall 003 will be modified to allow the discharge temperature to match the Coeymans Creek background temperature. A new Total Suspended Solids (TSS) limit of 30mg/l will be set based on discharge data which will replace the calculated categorical limit. The use of groundwater as temperature control water will be authorized. The TSS limit at Outfall 007 will now be a net limit which requires the monitoring of TSS upstream of the landfill operations and the BMP compliance schedule will be elimated based on the completion of the plan. The Blue Circle Cement facility is located on Route 9W in thhe Town of Coeymans. A draft permit is available for inspection at the NYSDEC Region 4 Office. SPDES #NY-0005037
