Tahawus, NY 12879
Application ID: 5-1538-00001/00004
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES
Project is Located: Newcomb, Essex County
Project Description:
    The Department has decided to pursue a Department Initiated Modification (DIM) to the SPDES permit for the NL Industries Inc. Sewage Treatment System (NY 000-6637).  This initiative was implemented to ensure compliance by the year 2009 with Goal 10 of the Hudson River Estuary Action Plan, 2005-2009; enacted by the Governor in 2004 to improve water quality.
    The objective of Goal 10 is to make the waters of the Hudson River safe for the public to swim for the river’s entire length.  Swimming in the Hudson River is currently limited in part due to high pathogen levels; some of which come from discharges of wastewater treatment facilities.  Therefore to reduce pathogen levels, the DEC will modify the above mentioned SPDES permit to include disinfection of the effluent for these wastewater discharges, as well as monitoring the discharges for fecal coliform and chlorine levels (as relevant) in the respective receiving waters within the Hudson River Watershed.
    The Hudson River Estuary Action Plan, 2005 - 2009, is available online at: www.dec.state.ny.us/website/hudson/hreagenda05.pdf.  Questions concerning the technical details of the permit can be directed to Shayne Mitchell at 518-402-8125.
