Waterloo, NY 13165
Application ID: 8-4538-00003/00019
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES
Project is Located: Waterloo, Seneca County
Project Description:
The Department has made a tentative determination to issue a permit modification to the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit conditions regulating outfall 013 which discharges non-contact cooling, contact cooling, boiler blowdown, treated process wastewater and stormwater to the Seneca River and Barge Canal from the Hampshire Chemical Corporation, a manufacturer of sulfur-based chemicals.  The proposed modification includes eliminating the water quality based effluent limit for total suspended solids (TDS) and replacing it with a monitoring requirement for TDS and water quality based effluent limits for chloride and sulfate.  Toxicity testing will be increased from quarterly to monthly to assure toxicity to fish species will not increase.  In addition, chlorine effluent limits will be removed from the permit because the facility no longer uses chlorine.  This tentative determination indicates that the discharge regulated under this statute is considered to satisfy the regulatory requirements for permit issuance. As a tentative determination, the Department seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision.  The file is available for review and comment at the NYSDEC Region 8 office.
