Washington, DC 20585
Facility: West Valley Demonstration Project
10282 Rock Springs Road
West Valley, NY 14171 -0191
Application ID: 9-0422-00005/00006
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES
Project is Located: Ashford, Cattaraugus County
Project Description:
The Department has prepared a SPDES draft permit modification (NY 0000973), which would provide twenty (20) stormwater outfalls from the West Valley Demonstration Project at 10282 Rock Springs Road. A similar draft permit has been prepared for issuance to New York State Energy Research and Development Authority for stormwater discharges (please see the other concurrently running public notice). The US Department of Energy and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority have requested that separate permits be issued to each agency for stormwater discharges. This draft permit modification also removes outfall 01A, which was never constructed, from the existing permit. In addition, some sampling/monitoring requirements for the process waste water outfall have been changed in the draft permit modification based upon the collection and analysis of data at the facility that was required in the existing permit. The stormwater outfalls discharge to: tributary (unnamed) of Erdman Brook, Class D, and Erdman Brook, Class D; tributary (unnnamed) to Franks Creek, Class C and wetland to Franks Creek, Class C; wetland tributary to Quarry Creek, Class C; and tributary (unnamed) to Buttermilk Creek. The draft permit requires a twice yearly sampling of stormwater runoff from certain specified rainfall events. The permit also contains a schedule that requires the permittee to prepare and submit a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan. The draft permit, fact sheets and materials submitted in support of the application are available for review and comment in both the regional office listed in this notice and the Albany office at 625 Broadway.
