Permit(s) Applied for: Article 23 Title 27 Mined Land Reclamation
Project is Located: Big Flats, Chemung County
Project Description:
The applicant proposes to modify the existing mining permit and mined land use plan for a 27-acre sand and gravel mine located on a 54+ acre parcel on Sing Sing Road in the Town of Big Flats. The modification request seeks approval to mine the existing, approved 27-acre Life of Mine to an elevation of 946 ft above mean sea level, a depth increase of approximately 12 feet. The increased depth of the mine's floor will provide approximately 300,000 cubic yards of sand and gravel reserves.

The Town of Webster proposes to construct approximately 5,600 linear feet of sanitary sewer (force main) to serve the Webster Sandbar area and residential areas along Lake Road, Vosburg Road, Bay Road, Sunhill Drive, and Del Rio Court in the Town of Webster, New York, to connect to an interceptor sewer in the Town of Irondequoit, for treatment at the Frank E. Van Lare Wastewater Treatment Facility.  The project, which will be a cooperative effort between the Town of Webster, the Monroe County Pure Waters, the Monroe County Water Authority, and Rochester Gas and Electric Corporation, will include the new sewers described above (to replace failing septics), a replacement of the 6-inch water main with an 8-inch water main on Lake Road, and a new gas line along Lake Road. The utilities will be bored under the Irondequoit Bay outlet which will require an Article 15 Permit.  The project will also include two pump stations on Lake Road. A portion of the sewers and the two pump stations will cross the adjacent area of regulated Freshwater Wetland, as well as, a coastal erosion hazard area and natural protective feature area. Therefore, both an Article 24 Permit and an Article 34 Permit will be required.  The file is available for review and comment at the NYSDEC Region 8 Office.

Ontario, NY 14519-
Application ID: 8-5434-00010/00003
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES
Project is Located: Ontario, Wayne County
Project Description:
The Department has made a tentative determination to issue a permit modification for a State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit under Article 17 of the Environmental Conservation law.  The applicant proposes to modify an existing discharge of approximately 490 million gallons per day of circulating cooling wastewater (Outfall 001) to Lake Ontario from the Rochester Gas and Electric Corporation Ginna Nuclear Power Plant - Station 13 facility, located at 1503 Lake Road, Ontario, NY. The proposed changes to the existing discharge includes adding a Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment System and adding ethanolamine (ETA) to the secondary system to prevent fouling of the steam generator tubes.  The feedwater will contain 6 ppm to reduce Iron (Fe) transport to the steam generators and the concentration of ETA in Outfall 001 will be maintained at or below 0.7 mg/l to prevent chronic toxicity to fish species.  In addition, the Department proposes to include a new study for monitoring entrainment (pass through of aquatic eggs and larvae into the cooling water intake). This tentative determination for the SPDES permit modification indicates that the discharge regulated under this statute is considered to satisfy regulatory standards for permit issuance, based on information available to the Department at this time.  As a tentative determination, the Department seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance.  You may contact the NYSDEC Region 8 office for review and comment by referring to the application number listed above.
