Livingston Manor, NY 12758
Application ID: 3-4844-00040/00003
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES
Project is Located: Rockland, Sullivan County
Project Description:
The Department has decided to pursue a Department Initiated Modification (DIM) to the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit (NY 002-5437, DEC id: 3-4844-00040/00003), the Town of Rockland wastewater treatment plant, pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 750-1.18, New York State’s Environmental Benefit Permit Strategy (EBPS).  Modifications of the permit are as follows:

Outfall 002 has been added to the permit.  This outfall is used only during storm events that make the Post Aerator and Outfall 001 unusable.

Seasonal monitoring changes have been identified under a parameter where limits change due to season.

The Water Quality Evaluation determined that the limit for Ammonia (as NH3) should be reduced to 11.0 mg/l.  The past three years of data indicate that this level is achievable.

The Ultimate Oxygen Demand (UOD) limit was reduced to 57.5 mg/l for all flows based on the past three years of data that indicate this level is achievable.  The UOD mass loading is now 384 lbs/day versus 380 lbs/day based on permitted flow (0.8 mgd) and concentration (57.5 mg/l).

Water temperature has been changed to an “Action Level”.  Data from the facility over the past three summers included discharging temperatures over 70 degrees; which exceeded the temperature criteria governing thermal discharges.  If the temperature action level is exceeded, the facility will be required to perform additional sampling to determine the impact on the Willowemac River.

Mercury has been added as a parameter to the permit to be monitored annually.  This has been added since data included in the facilities application included results for mercury.

Industrial pretreatment requirements have been eliminated since there is no industry discharging to the treatment plant.

A compliance schedule for repair has been added for Clarifier #2 and Lagoon #2 so they can be repaired in a timely fashion and can be ready for service if the other units become inoperative.

The DIM would also include other minor reporting modifications.  The permittee has two outfalls that both discharge into the Willowemac River, a class C(TS) water.  The Department seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance.
