Application ID: 7-3115-00113/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES
Project is Located: Syracuse, Onondaga County
Project Description:
The Department has made a tentative determination to modify an existing permit for the average discharge of 84.2 MGD municipal wastewater from the Metropolitan Syracuse Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP).  The modifications are based on a series of engineering and scientific studies done to evaluate the need for upgrading the WWTP and providing treatment of the combined sewer overflows (CSO) that occur in the WWTP's service area.  The studies were done due to a Judgment on Consent which required the County to perform these studies.  As a result the monitoring requirements for various CSO treatment facilities are included in this draft permit.  The current wastewater treatment consists of activated treatment system followed by two new filtration facilities: one to address ammonia removal and the other to reduce the phosphorous levels in the WWTP's discharge.  A draft permit is available for review.
