Project Description:
The applicant proposes to reconstruct an existing roadway crossing within State-designated Freshwater Wetland HP-21 (Class I) and construct a new sanitary wastewater treatment plant with a treatment capacity of 66,100 gallons per day (GPD).  The project site is located on the west side of NYS Route 9G, approximately 0.6 mile north of the intersection with Mill Road.  The project would involve the disturbance of approximately 0.06 acre of wetlands for replacement of an existing 4-culvert crossing with a new single-span bridge approximately 40 feet long.  There will also be a total of about 0.06 acre of impact to federally regulated wetlands for construction of utilities and an emergency access road.

The Department has made a tentative determination to approve this application for a SPDES permit to discharge an average volume of 66,100 GPD from the proposed wastewater treatment plant to Crum Elbow Creek [DEC Water Index No. H-124; Class A(T)]. The permittee will be required to maintain records and report data to verfiy compliance with the SPDES permit conditions and discharge limits.  A draft SPDES permit (SPDES No. NY-0078549) is available for review at the NYSDEC Region 3 office.   A stormwater pollution prevention plan has also been prepared for the site pursuant to the SPDES General Permit for Stormwater Discharges from Construction Activities (GP-02-01).
