Facility: Schoharie - V STP
Depot Ln
Schoharie, NY 12157
Application ID: 4-4342-00007/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES
Project is Located: Schoharie, Schoharie County
Project Description:
This discharge of wastewater is to the Schoharie Creek which is classified C which indicates the best use as fishing and secondary contact recreation which would indicate that disinfection is not required.  However, disinfection of wastewater is a public health issue and in this instance, the existing permit for this discharge requires year-round disinfection due to a request by the Schoharie County Health Department.  The Village has requested to change this requirement to seasonal disinfection (May 1 - October 31). This request has been reviewed by the Schoharie County Health Department and has been approved by them.  The Department has made a tentative determination to modify this State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System 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 the modification issuance.  As such this tentative determination does not signify department approval for or endorsement of the activity for which a modification is sought.  Refer to this application by application number listed above and SPDES number NY0023655.
