Application ID: 5-4126-00005/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES
Project is Located: Corinth, Saratoga County
Project Description:
Our records indicate that your current State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) permit authorizes you to discharge treated sewage, either directly to the Hudson River or indirectly via a tributary stream, and that your permit does not require you to disinfect your discharge.  In order to support contact recreation in the Hudson River the Department is modifying your SPDES permit to require disinfection of the effluent from your sewage treatment plant.  The details of this permit modification are consistent with the information that was provided in the June 28, 2006 letter that the Department sent to you.  

In 2004 the Governor made a commitment to ensure that Hudson River water quality will be suitable for swimming by 2009.  This commitment is further detailed in the Hudson River Estuary Action Plan, 2005 - 2009 as Goal 10, see www.dec.state.ny.us/website/hudson/hreagenda05.pdf  .  In order to achieve this goal, it is necessary to require that certain dischargers institute disinfection treatment to reduce pathogen levels and comply with water quality standards.  Because of the location of your discharge, the New York State Departments of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and Health (DOH) have determined that your permit must be modified to require seasonal effluent disinfection in support of the goal, beginning in 2009.

Although this permit modification is not yet in effect, it is recommended that you begin planning now in order to ensure that the necessary disinfection treatment facilities can be funded, designed, and installed in time to meet the 2009 date.  Please note that the design of new disinfection facilities must be submitted under the seal of a professional engineer licensed to practice in New York State and that this design must be approved by DEC prior to construction.  

Upgrades to municipal wastewater treatment plants to provide disinfection may be eligible for financial assistance.  During 2006, two million dollars in State assistance payments were awarded to fund up to 85% of disinfection capital costs - four plants were approved to receive maximum funding and three plants were approved to receive partial funding.  It is hoped that additional funding may be available in the future.  If so, you will be contacted.  Please note that disinfection funds will not be awarded to successful applicants until appropriate disinfection requirements are incorporated into an issued SPDES permit.  To explore funding opportunities through the Clean Water State Revolving Fund contact the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation at 518-402-7438.

Questions concerning the technical details of the permit can be directed to Shayne Mitchell at 518-402-8125.
