Herkimer County

Applicant: Herkimer County
109 Mary St
Herkimer, NY 13350
Facility: Herkimer Co Sd Wwtf
106 West Main St
Mohawk, NY 13407
Application ID: 6-2128-00009/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES
Project is Located: Herkimer County
Project Description:
The applicant proposes an existing discharge of 6.1 million gallons per day of treated sanitary wastewater to the Mohawk River from a secondary treatment plant at the applicantís facility located at 106 West Main Street Mohawk, New York.  The permit will be modified to include:
1) an outfall that has been used as a high water discharge point throughout the history of the Herkimer County Sewer District (HCSD) Wastewater Treatment Facility.  This outfall is now listed as Outfall 002;
2) another outfall that was designated as a treatment plant effluent discharge during high waters.  This outfall is now listed as Outfall 003.  According to a June 26, 2002 letter from the permittee, the second outfall could be used if normal power fails and emergency generator also fails.  As a result, any discharge from Outfall 003 is being categorized as a Type 1 Sanitary Sewer Overflow (SSO) according to the DECís draft Compliance and Enforcement Response Guide (CERG).
    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 a 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.
Refer to this application by application number listed above and SPDES number, NY-0036528.
