Ludlow Dock South
Yonkers, NY 10705
Application ID: 3-5518-00342/00002
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES
Project is Located: Yonkers, Westchester County
Project Description:
This is a Department-initiated modification, undertaken pursuant to 6NYCRR Part 720-1.18(a)(3), (6) & (7). The following changes have been made to the permit:
Updated permit pages - All mention of the General Conditions have been removed from the permit pages, as these conditions have been replaced by regulations at 6NYCRR Part 750. The capacity assessment requirement was removed as it has already been done.
Flow - The draft permit contains a year-round flow limitation of 120 mgd, modifying the current design flow of the treatment plant from its original 92 mgd. This limit is set as a twelve-month rolling average in accordance with Division of Water Technical & Operational Guidance Series (TOGS) 1.3.3, which allows a twelve-month rolling average for wastewater treatment plants receiving flow from combined sewer systems. The permittee has agreed to continue to meet the mass-based biological oxygen demand and total suspended solids limits using the 92 mgd as the basis of conversion from concentration to mass.  The modification of the flow limit was based on a demonstrated capacity analysis of the wastewater treatment plant. The permittee was able to demonstrate that the original design flow of 92 mgd was conservative and that the treatment plant was able to handle a hydraulic capacity of 120 mgd while meeting permit limits.  The current permit contains seasonal flow limits: 120 mgd during the period May through November and 145 mgd during the period December through April. These limits are interim limits, set pursuant to a consent order, in effect while the permittee completed an infiltration and inflow (I&I) study. The permittee was also required to complete a study of their combined sewer system, which resulted in the construction of two swirl concentrators at the North and South pump stations, and to submit a capacity assessment evaluation of the Yonkers Joint treatment plant. The current permit contained a reopener clause, allowing the Department to reopen the permit to revise the interim flow limitations and set a final flow limit after completion of the I&I study.  The I&I Report was submitted December 29,2003 and approved by the Department on May 13, 2004. The implementation of the  I&I program resulted in decreased flow to the treatment plant;
the Report estimated that infiltration in the Yonkers sewer system was reduced by 14.4 to 20 mgd in Yonkers.
I&I Compliance Schedule - The language in the schedule of compliance has been updated. The permittee had concluded the I&I program required in their consent order and now agrees to monitor I&I and submit an annual summary report.
CSO BMP Revision - CSO BMP # 11 was revised to include more site specific requirements concerning the Hawthorne Septage Receiving Station so that septage and hauled waste are not discharged to the receiving water during wet weather. The requirement to submit annual CSO reports to Central Office (as well as the RWE) was also added.
CBOD5 - The permittee requested that they have a Carbonaceous Biological Oxygen Demand limit (which is 5 mg/l less than the Biological Oxygen Demand limit) all year long, rather than just in the summer. This is acceptable to the Department and the limits have therefore been  revised.
