The Department has made a tentative determination to approve this application for a modification of an existing discharge to Mohawk River of 5.6 MGD of treated municipal sanitary wastewater. The permit has been modified to increase the flow limit to 7.0 MGD. Construction of a biotower and headwork analysis has allowed the plant to accept and treat flows greater than the existing permit limit. The changes also include a decrease in the effluent limitation for copper from 2.9lbs./day to 1.9 lbs./day. Additionally the Department will require monthly sampling of mercury and an interim discharge limit of 0.0467 lbs./day.
