Application ID: 9-0608-00017/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES
Project is Located: Jamestown, Chautauqua County
Project Description:
    A modification to SPDES Permit No. NY-0003395 is proposed as part of the Environmental Benefit Permit Strategy program for an existing discharge of 137,000 gallons per day (Maximum)(GPD) from Outfall 001 of Treated  Process and Contact Cooling Water, 2,000 GPD (Maximum) from Outfall 002 of Non Contact Cooling Water, and 3,000 GPD (Maximum) from Outfall 003 of Emergency Overflow Contact Cooling Water.  All outfalls are tributary to the Chadakoin River, a Class C stream and are located at the applicant's facility which manufactures cooling systems for trucks.  A Draft Permit has been prepared which reflects requirements for Best Available Technology and Water Quality Standards as well as changes in the manufacturing process.  Changes in the Draft Permit include the addition of an effluent limit for Total Suspended Solids, more stringent effluent limits for Aluminum, Fluoride, Iron, and Ammonia, and less stringent effluent limits for Copper, Lead and Silver.  Also, Hexavalent Chromium has been eliminated from the permit's effluent limitations and monitoring requirements due to the discontinuance of Chromium in the manufacturing process.  
    The Department has made a tentative determination to issue a permit for a State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit under Article 17 of the Environmental Conservation law.  This tentative determination 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.  As such, this tentative determination does not signify department approval for or endorsement of the activity for which a permit is sought or for the overall proposed project.

Application ID: 9-2934-00022/00097
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 27 TItle 9 Resource Conservation and Recovery Act
Project is Located: Porter, Niagara County
Project Description:
The Department has drafted a Part 373 Permit and made a tentative determination to renew the permit for operation of CWM's facility for the treatment, storage and disposal of hazardous and industrial non-hazardous waste on an approximately 710 acre site in the Towns of Lewiston and Porter.  The facility is located on Balmer Road about 1.9 miles east of State Route 18.  This commercial facility accepts wastes from both in-state and out-of-state generators, as well as from generators in Canada.  Wastes accepted at this facility are ultimately either disposed of in an on-site landfill known as Residual Management Unit-One (RMU-1), or shipped to another appropriate facility for further processing and/or disposal.  The draft permit maintains requirements for CWM to continue corrective measures to remedy/control on-site soil and groundwater contamination.  It also maintains requirements for CWM to provide funding for Department on-site environmental monitors, and for CWM to provide financial assurance for closure of the facility, and for corrective measures and post-closure care in perpetuity. In addition, the draft permit contains some additional and revised requirements related to facility operation.  The Department has scheduled an availability session on February 4, 2003 from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM and from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM at the Town of Porter Town Hall, 3265 Creek Road, Youngstown, New York.  The purpose of this session is for Department staff to answer questions that the public may have on the technical, environmental, and procedural aspects of the draft permit.
