Facility: Western Ramapo WWTP
Old Rte 17 Off Exit 15A NYS Thruway Southbound to End of Road
Hillburn, NY
Application ID: 3-3926-00537/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification
Article 15 Title 27 Wild, Scenic, & Recreational Rivers
Article 15 Title 5 Stream Disturbance
Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES
Project is Located: Ramapo, Rockland County
Project Description:
    The Rockland County Sewer District No. 1 has proposed to construct a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) with a minimum treatment capacity of 1.5 million-gallons-per-day (mgd) (maximum of 5.0 mgd) on a site along the abandoned entry ramp to State Route 17 in the Village of Hillburn.  Treated wastewater will be discharged to the Ramapo River.  The 1.5 mgd WWTP capacity will serve the Villages of Sloatsburg, Hillburn, a portion of the unincorporated Town of Ramapo, and Tuxedo Mountain Apartments, and replaces subsurface disposal systems, many of which are failing, and older wastewater treatment plans.  The 1.5 mgd capacity is based on serving the existing and future needs of Western Ramapo utilizing current zoning limitations.  The maximum size WWTP of 5.0 mgd may be constructed in the future to process an additional 3.5 mgd of wastewater from currently sewered areas within the Sewer District in the Town of Ramapo which presently flows to the wastewater treatment plant in Orangeburg and discharges to the Hudson River.
    Construction of new sewer lines to serve these areas will require work within the State Freshwater Wetland SL-9 (Class III) and its 100 foot adjacent area, and the 100 foot adjacent area of State Freshwater Wetland SL-7 (Class II).  Portions of the new sewer system will also be constructed within the Wild, Scenic and Recreational River Corridor of the Ramapo River.  Sewer line crossings of several State regulated streams are also proposed for the Ramapo River (two locations), Nakoma Brook (five locations), Stony Brook and tributary 2 of the Ramapo River.
    The NYS DEC has made a tentative decision to approve the SPDES permit for the new Western Ramapo WWTP.  A draft SPDES permit containing proposed effluent limits and monitoring requirements that DEC staff believe are required to meet regulatory standards has been prepared.  A "Fact Sheet" has also been prepared that identifies DEC's basis for the effluent limits and requirements in the draft permit.  Two discharge outfall locations to the Ramapo River are proposed.  Discharge outfall 001 will be located in the immediate vicinity of the WWTP, just upstream of the regulatory weir in the river. Discharge outfall 002 is located approximately 1000 feet upstream of the United Water wellfield.  The County proposes to use outfall 002 to supplement river flows in order to allow the wellfield to continue to be used during low flow periods.  In addition, the County has requested that outfall 003 be authorized to allow wastewater to be diverted to the Orangeburg WWTP should the Western Ramapo WWTP have operational problems.
    As a tentative determination, DEC seeks comments on the draft SPDES permit and the applications for other DEC permits required by the County for this project.  The draft SPDES permit, Fact Sheet and other application materials are available for review at the Region 3 office of DEC.
