Application ID: 2-6102-00004/00009
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES
Project is Located: Brooklyn, Kings County
Project Description:
The Department has made a tentative determination to approve this application for the modification of an existing SPDES permit for a discharge of treated wastewater into the Gowanus Canal (Class SD) and the Gowanus Bay (Class I) from a bulk petroleum storage facility located at 722 Court Street, Brooklyn NY 11231.

Compared to the existing permit that this modification will replace, the following significant changes are proposed:
Add Outfall 002 - New discharge outfall is a result of secondary containment system upgrades required by NYSDEC’s Petroleum Bulk Storage Program for storage tanks 9411, 9412 and 9413.  The existing containment systems are being upgraded with impermeable surfaces which will result in a point source discharge of accumulated precipitation.
Add effluent limit for settleable solids at outfall 001.  
Add effluent limit for total suspended solids at outfall 01A.  
Updated permit pages and conditions reflect current Department guidance, format and boiler plate language.
