Modifications are proposed to the process water and stormwater management systems and a new site specific State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) permit application has been submitted. Up to eight outfalls will be permitted under this application. Flows from outfalls 001 through 003 will be treated stormwater run off and will discharge to New York State Regulated Freshwater Wetlands JV-6 and JV-8 in the Susquehana drainage basin. Flows from outfall 004 will be from treated quarry dewatering and stormwater runoff and will be discharged to New York State Regulated Freshwater Wetland JV-6 . Flows from outfall 005 through 008 will be less than 1,000 gpd each of sanitary wastewater discharged to groundwater. A Freshwater wetland permit will be required for the construction of outfall 004 in the 100 foot regulated adjacent area of the wetland.
