Project Description:
This is a mass modification, in accordance with New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Technical & Operational Guidance Series 1.2.2 and 6 NYCRR Part 750-1.18 (b)(7).

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recently promulgated effluent limitations guidelines and new source performance standards for the Concentrated Aquatic Animal Production (CAAP) Point Source Category at 40 CFR Part 451. This point source category consists of facilities with Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) codes of 0921 and 0273, i.e. fish farms and fish hatcheries. The following SPDES permit is affected by the new regulation and has been modified, en masse with all other fish hatcheries in NYS, to comply with the federal regulations:

Facility
Permit Number
DEC Number
South Otselic State Fish Hatchery
NY0244431
7-0844-00013/00001

The federal regulations require that the SPDES permits for all CAAP facilities include specific reporting requirements, including reporting of: use of investigational new animal drugs; failure in, or damage to, the structure of an aquatic animal containment system resulting in an unanticipated material discharge of pollutants to waters of the state; and the spill of drugs, pesticides or feed that results in a discharge to waters of the state. All of the 18 SPDES hatchery permits in NYS now include these reporting requirements.
    
The federal regulations also require that CAAP facilities that produce over 100,000 pounds per year of fish be required to develop, maintain, and implement a Best Management Practices (BMP) plan to prevent releases of significant amounts of pollutants to the waters of the state. Four of the eighteen facilities produce over 100,000 pounds of fish per year. They are: Caledonia, Catskill, Rome and Salmon River fish hatcheries. These four SPDES permits were modified to include the requirement to develop BMP plans.
