Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Private/Commercial/Institutional SPDES
Project is Located: Newburgh, Orange County
Project Description:
DEC has tentatively determined to issue a draft State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) permit to Meadow Creek Development, LLC for discharge of sanitary wastewater from a the proposed Orchard Hills subdivision wastewater treatment plant (WWTP.) The project site is located in the Town of Newburgh/Middlehope, Orange County, off NYS Route 9W, north of Oak Street.  The draft SPDES permit authorizes a discharge of 120,000 gallons per day to a Class C unnamed tributary of the Hudson River. The permit contains effluent limits for Flow, BOD, Temperature, Suspended Solids, Settleable Solids,  Dissolved Oxygen, Nitrogen, Fecal Coliform, pH and Total Residual Chlorine.  The WWTP, when constructed, will serve the proposed Orchard Hills 272-unit subdivision and will also serve the existing 150-unit Apple Valley Apartment complex, located west of the site across NYS Route 9W.  The current SPDES permit for the Apple Valley Apartment complex will remain in effect until diversion is effectively complete.  DEC will discontinue the SPDES permit upon request of the permittee after successful decommissioning of the existing WWTP on the Apple Valley site.
