Permit(s) Applied for: Article 15 Title 5 Excavation & Fill in Navigable Waters
Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES
Project is Located: St Lawrence County
Project Description:
The Department has made a tentative determination to approve an application for a modification of an existing SPDES permit (NY0121142) to discharge to the Oswegatchie River via a newly constructed outfall at the applicant's dairy and whey plants on Union Street (State Route 184) in the Village of Heuvelton in St. Lawrence County.  An existing outfall (002) under this permit discharges non-contact cooling water from the whey plant. A second existing outfall (001) discharging non-contact cooling water from the dairy will be added to this permit.  The SPDES permit (NY0257605) for the dairy's non-contact cooling water will be deleted.  The newly constructed outfall (003) is proposed to discharge approximately 0.188 MGD of treated process wastewater from an anaerobic/aerobic treatment plant which is to be built at the site.  The applicant operates a dairy which produces ricotta, mozzarella and provolone cheeses and a whey processing plant at the site.  

The Department has also made a tentative determination to issue an Article 15 excavation and fill in navigable waters for the installation of the outfall pipe into the Oswegatchie River.  The draft SPDES permit and Article 15 application are available for review in the Region 6 NYSDEC office in Watertown, New York.
