Facility: Cedarhurst Water Pollution Control Plant

Cedarhurst, NY 11516
Application ID: 1-2820-00184/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES
Project is Located: Hempstead, Nassau County
Project Description:
The State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) permit for the Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) in Nassau County has  been modified in accordance with New York State’s  Environmental Benefit Permit Strategy (EBPS).

Permit pages -
Updated permit pages are used, based on current Department guidance, format and nomenclature.
Permit pages are renumbered and reordered.
The address for the Bureau of Watershed Compliance and Nassau County Department of Health on the Recording, Reporting and Monitoring page have been updated.
The Discharge Notification Act requirements were added to the permit.
A new Monitoring Locations page has been added to the permit.   

Permit Limits, Levels and Monitoring -
    
Mass limits - Mass limits for CBOD5 and TSS were rounded to 2 significant figures in compliance with DEC guidance in the DMR Manual for Completing the Discharge Monitoring Report for the SPDES, NYSDEC, February, 2002.

Influent Sampling - The influent sampling requirements for settleable solids, TKN, ammonia, total nitrogen, phosphorus, and ortho-phosphate have been removed from the permit, as the information is no longer necessary.
   
Total Residual Chlorine (TRC) - The TRC limit has been changed from 2.0 mg/l to a new limit of 0.5 mg/l based on a new water quality standard.  The plant currently may not be able to meet this new limit.  A schedule of compliance has been added  to the permit and an interim limit of 2.0 mg/l will be in effect until the permittee can identify and construct the facilities necessary to meet the new limit.

Ammonia - The Department wishes to make the permittee aware that a marine ammonia standard will be promulgated in the near future, requiring the inclusion of an ammonia limit in the permit. The preliminary WQBEL for ammonia that may be included in a future permit is 2.7 mg/l. The permittee is currently unable to meet this limit and this should be taken into account when contemplating future upgrades or operational changes at the plant.

Permit(s) Applied for: Article 19 Air Title V Facility
Project is Located: Huntington, Suffolk County
Project Description:
The Department has drafted a modification (Mod 1) to the initial Title V permit, pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control)of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) and made tentative determination to approve the application that renews the applicant’s existing municipal waste combustor Title V facility permit.  The facility consists of three mass burn waterwall type municipal waste combustor units, located at 99 Townline Road, East Northport, Town of Huntington, Suffolk County.
Additionally, based on the historical emission data of ammonia, the applicant requests to modify the compliance determination of this contaminant from continuous emission monitoring to annual stack testing and the averaging period of this parameter from 3-hour rolling average to arithmetic mean of three one-hour stack tests.
In accordance with 6NYCRR Parts 621.5(d)(9) and 201-6.4(c), the Administrator of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) has the authority to bar issuance of any Title V Facility Permit if it is determined not to be in compliance with applicable requirements of the Clean Air Act or 6NYCRR Part 201.
Persons wishing to inspect the subject Title V files, including the application with all relevant supporting materials, the draft permit, and all other materials available to the DEC (the "permitting authority") that are relevant to this permitting decision should contact the DEC representative listed below.  It is recommended that an appointment be made to confirm the availability of the subject files.  The DEC will endeavor to make the files available within 2 business days of contact, during normal business hours (8:30 am through 4:45 pm), unless the requestor wishes to inspect the files at a later date.
DEC will evaluate the application and the comments received on it to determine whether to hold a public hearing.  A public hearing may be legislative or adjudicatory.  A legislative public hearing is a proceeding which provides an additional opportunity for public comment.  DEC's determination to hold a legislative public hearing will be based on whether a significant degree of public interest exists.   If a legislative public hearing is to be held, a Notice of Hearing will be published which will include the time and place of the hearing and submitting comments.   The applicant and all persons who  have filed comments on the permit will be notified by mail of the public hearing.  Comments and requests for a legislative public hearing should be in writing and addressed to the Department representative listed below.
An adjudicatory public hearing is a trial type proceeding which provides the opportunity for adjudication on the basis of evidence, including direct testimony and cross examination.  An adjudicatory hearing is held only if substantive and significant issues relating to any findings or determinations the Department is required to make pursuant to the Environmental Conservation Law exist.   A copy of the Department's permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department web site at: www.dec.state.ny.us/website/ohms/gudph1.htm.
