Consolidated SPDES Renewals
Cortland County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed New York LP Gas Storage Inc., Underground Storage Project, Harford Mills Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) Storage Facility will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves NYLPG requesting an Underground Storage Modification Permit for the modification and operation of a LPG Storage facility utilizing underground storage caverns in the Salina formation (3,000' depth). The plans include modification of two existing storage caverns by routine operation of the storage facility. Well No. 1, storage capacity of 382,000 barrels (16.0 million gallons) is projected to increase in volume to 654,000 barrels (27.5 million gallons) over an 18 year period. Well No. 3, 250,000 barrels (10.5 million gallons) is projected to increase in volume to 406,000 barrels (17.1 million gallons), also over a projected 18-year period. One barrel equals 42 U.S. gallons. In addition, the Department is proposing to modify the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) permit for this facility in accordance with New York State’s Environmental Benefit Permit Strategy (EBPS). Updated permit pages are proposed based on current Department guidance, format and nomenclature. Permit pages are renumbered and reordered. Temperature, TSS, chlorides and Best Management Practices (BMP) have been added to the permit. The proposed project is located on property owned by NYLPG. The site is primarily on the west side of New York State Highway 200 in the town of Harford, Cortland County.
