Project Description:
The Department has tentatively determined to issue a modification to the current SPDES permit for the Anderson School for special needs children on Route 9.  The modification consolidates two outfalls (originally # 002 & # 003) into one discharge point, which will continue to discharge into a stormwater catch basin, which ultimately drains to the Hudson River.  Permitted flow will be increased from 16,000 gallons per day (GPD) to 21,000 GPD due to the outfall consolidation. Outfall #004 has been renamed outfall #002 and remains unchanged.  SPDES NY 010 2768.

Applicant: Village of Walden
1 Municipal Square
Walden, NY 12586
Facility: Walden Well #8
Lake Osiris Rd
Montgomery, NY
Application ID: 3-3342-00314/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 15 Title 15 Water Supply
Project is Located: Montgomery, Orange County
Project Description:
       The Village of Walden has applied for a Water Supply permit (WSA #10,866) to develop a new water supply well, Well #8, which is within 450 feet of its existing Well #7.  Well #8 is an eight (8) inch diameter well, approximately 60 feet deep, of which the first 40 feet is steel-encased to prevent surface waters from entering the well. The bottom 20 feet is screened to allow water from only the sand and gravel aquifer to be drawn into the well.  The Village applied for approval to pump Well#8 at 360 gpm if Well #7 is turned off.  However, the Village has also applied to pump both Well #7 and Well #8 at a combined rate of no more than 525 gallons per minute.
        The water from this new well would be used in the Village's existing water supply system.   Well #8 is located on Village property, on the north side of Lake Osiris Road, in the Town of Montgomery, Orange County, New York.

Woodbury, NY
Application ID: 3-3358-00056/00005
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES
Project is Located: Woodbury, Orange County
Project Description:
The Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has received an application to modify the above referenced State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) permit.  This permit currently authorizes the surface discharge of up to 100,000 gallons per day (GPD) of treated sanitary waste to Tributary #7 of the Woodbury Creek.  The modification requested involves an increase in permitted flow to 320,000 GPD. This increase in flow is requested for the purpose of accommodating the proposed WP3 subdivision project, which would contribute wastewater to the Highland Lake Estates Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) when completed.

DEC has made a tentative determination to issue a modified permit and to take this opportunity to incorporate updated effluent limits based upon relevant environmental information.  Effluent limits have been drafted with the intention of further protecting the water quality of the receiving water and the Woodbury Creek watershed resource as a whole.  Additional information on this permit may be requested from or inspected by appointment at the NYSDEC Central Office in Albany or at the NYSDEC Region 3 Office in New Paltz.  Substantive comments must be submitted in writing to the contact person.  SPDES #:  NY 021 9304
