Route 63
Groveland, NY 14462
Application ID: 8-2428-00019/00002
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES
Project is Located: Groveland, Livingston County
Project Description:
The applicant operates an industrial mining facility located on Route 63 in Groveland where salt is mined for use in highway deicing.  The Department proposes to modify the referenced wastewater discharge permit based on monitoring required in the previous permit and subsequent installation of full scale equipment for distributing salt additives. The proposed modification will add limits for biological oxygen demand (BOD), phosphorus, ammonia, nitrogen (TKN) and nitrate/nitrite based on the required monitoring results.  This modification will also change the cyanide limit from instream to end of pipe and will specify a more accurate downstream monitoring point and clarifies the timing of the monitoring at this downstream point.  Finally, this modification will incorporate new Best Management Practices plan and Sign Law pages.  The discharge enters the Genessee River, a class C stream in the vicinity of this facility.  The discharge will meet New York State Water Quality Standards with the proposed discharge limits.

The Department has made a tentative determination to approve this modification.  As a tentative determination, the Department seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance.  A draft permit is available for review.
