Facility: Cayuga Salt Mine
191 Portland Pt Rd
South Lansing, NY 14882
Application ID: 0-9999-00075/00004
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES
Project is Located: Several Counties throughout the State
Project Description:
The Department has made a tentative determination to approve the applicant's proposed modifications to their existing SPDES permit. The modifications involve constructing a new submerged non-contact cooling water discharge to be outfall 014; remodeling an existing intake structure to use Cayuga Lake water for non-contact cooling at their electrodialysis (ED) plant; and consolidating existing stormwater runoff outfalls 004 and 005 with outfall 003. The non-contact cooling water is to provide cooling to the stormwater runoff treatment plant process units which use electrodialysis to remove chloride salts. Cooling water flows are estimated at 100-500 gpm depending on the season. The consolidation of outfalls 004 and 005 into existing outfall 003 will simplify and improve compliance monitoring and reporting. The application and the draft permit is available for review in the Cortland DEC Office.
