Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES
Project is Located: Schenectady, Schenectady County
Project Description:
Schenectady International, Inc.(SII) proposes to modify its current State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) permit, which allows the discharge of stormwater from its former Congress Street facility to Cowhorn Creek, by adding a discharge of up to 72,000 gallons per day of treated groundwater from a treatment system on the site.  The groundwater treatment system collects groundwater from the site and pumps it to a treatment system compromised of an oil-water separator, bag filters and carbon adsorption units prior to discharge.  Presently, the treated groundwater is discharged to the City of Schenectady sanitary sewer system.  SII proposes to redirect the discharge from the sewer system to Cowhorn Creek.  The department has made a tentative determination to modify this permit under Article 17 of the Environmental Conservation Law.  This tentative determination indicates that the 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 the number listed in this notice in any comments submitted to the Department.
