Woodridge, NY 12789
Application ID: 3-4828-00297/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 15 Title 5 Stream Disturbance
Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Private/Commercial/Institutional SPDES
Project is Located: Fallsburgh, Sullivan County
Project Description:
The Department has made a tentative determination to approve this application for modification to existing SPDES permit # NY-0148601 for Whispering Woods (formerly known as Lazy G Campground), located on Rosemond Rd in Woodridge, to discharge up to 30,000 gallons of treated wastewater per day to an unnamed tributary of the West Branch of the Beerkill (Water Index # H-139-14-38-3-1-6;  Class B(t)). A draft SPDES permit with DEC proposed effluent limits and monitoring requirements is available for review at the DEC Region 3 headquarters in New Paltz. The permittee will be required to maintain records and report data to verify compliance with the SPDES permit conditions and discharge limits.  

The applicant proposes to replace the current treatment system which discharges 6600 gallons of treated wastewater per day into an unnamed tributary of Silver Lake (Water Index # H-139-14-38-P807-4, Class D).  The current sand filters and outfall are less than 100 feet from existing dwellings.  The existing system will be abandoned in place as soon as the proposed system is in operation.

The upgrade in sewer capacity is part of a proposed facility expansion which will remove the existing travel trailers and test sites and add an additional 68 double wide home trailers.  Construction of the proposed sewer outfall will disturb no more than 20 feet of the unnamed tributary of the West Branch of the Beerkill.
