Application ID: 4-1228-00002/00003
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES
Project is Located: Delhi, Delaware County
Project Description:
Morningstar/Ultra Dairy submitted a request to modify the maximum daily temperature limit in the SPDES permit from 70 F to 85 F.  Morningstar submitted a work plan that was approved by the Department to monitor the upstream and downstream temperatures for a period of time to determine the impact its effluent would have on stream temperature.

Division of Water and Fisheries staff reviewed the data and determined that 75 F is an acceptable maximum daily temperature with limited spikes.  The permit has been modified to reflect this change along with additional monitoring and reporting requirements in the event the temperature exceeds 75 F.  The following language was added to the draft permit:            

Temperature limit of 75 F may be exceeded for no more than 120 minutes per 24 hour period with no single peak to exceed 80 F.  A summary of temperature spikes (greater than 75 F) shall be included as an amendment to each monthly DMR.  This summary shall include the number of times the effluent temperature exceeds 75 F as well as the minimum average and maximum duration of these temperature spikes.

A copy of the Proposed modification is available from the Department Contact Person.
