Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification
Article 15 Title 5 Stream Disturbance
Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES
Project is Located: Springwater, Livingston County
Project Description:
The Department has made a tentative determination to approve a new SPDES permit for a proposed municipal wastewater treatment facility to treat effluent from the Hamlet of Springwater at a rate of 40,000 gallons per day with a new discharge to a ditch north of Kellog Road which eventually flows into Springwater Creek at the confluence of Limekiln Creek on the City of Rochester's property.  The new facility will be comprised of the following: replacement of failed septic tanks throughout the Hamlet of Springwater, connection of septic tanks and pumps at 229 residences or businesses, 5.8 miles of pressure sewers, and a 2 acre- subsurface "wetland" treatment system" to treat grey water to secondary standards.  The project will also require disturbance to regulated freshwater wetlands and adjacent area due to the treatment cells and discharge ditch and work within regulated streams (Limekiln and Springwater).  As a tentative determination, the Department seeks comments on this proposed activity.  The file is available for review and comment at the NYSDEC Region 8 office.
