Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification
Article 15 Title 5 Stream Disturbance
Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES
Project is Located: Patterson, Putnam County
Project Description:
The Town proposes to construct a new wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) to consolidate the treatment of wastewater from several existing facilities and developments located within the Hamlet of Patterson.  The new WWTP will be constructed on a 32 acre parcel off Cornwall Hill Road and is designed to treat 80,000 gallons per day of wastewater with discharge to an unnamed tributary of Muddy Brook (Class C(t)). Construction of the treatment plant will require other accessory work including construction of effluent and stormwater outfalls,  stormwater control structures and new sewer lines  to be done within the regulated areas of state wetland DP-22 (Class I) and on the banks of the effluent receiving stream.  The Department has prepared a draft SPDES permit containing proposed wastewater effluent limits and monitoring requirements it believes necessary to ensure that the water quality standards of the receiving stream are met.  The draft permit is available for review at the Department's Regional Office in New Paltz.
