DEC Region 3 Only, NY
Application ID: 3-9903-00023/00006
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES
Project is Located: Mount Pleasant, Multiple Counties
Project Description:
The Department has made a tentative determination to approve this application for a new SPDES permit for an existing surface discharge from an outfall (Catskill Influent Chamber) at the Kensico Reservoir (Class AA).  The outfall ( No. 001 ) is located near the northern terminus of the Kensico  Reservoir and reflects the routine transfer of approximately 400 million gallons per day (MGD) of drinking water from Ashokan Reservoir to Kensico Reservoir via the Catskill Aqueduct as part of on-going drinking water supply operations for the City of New York.  Aluminum sulfate (alum) and sodium hydroxide (caustic) may also be added periodically to the discharge in order to control turbidity and enhance disinfection. Additions of these treatment chemicals would be conducted at the existing Catskill Alum Plant (CATALUM) located in Pleasantville in the Town of Mount Pleasant, and would occur only after the NYS Department of Health has determined that such treatment is necessary to protect public health. The draft permit contains requirements intended to minimize the duration of such chemical treatments, and includes monitoring and reporting of flow, turbidity, total suspended solids (TSS), and temperature.  The project involves no new construction.  Outfall No. 001 is located near the northern terminus of the Kensico Reservoir, south of Nannyhagen Road in the Town of Mount Pleasant, Westchester County. A revised draft permit is available for inspection and comment at the regional office.  This Notice supercedes the Notice of Complete Application which was published the week of February 13, 2006.
