Express Terms for 6 NYCRR Section 702.17
6 NYCRR Section 702.17 is amended follows:
Paragraph 4 of subdivision (a) of Section 702.17 is amended to read as follows:
(a) The department may grant, to an applicant for a SPDES permit or to a SPDES permittee, a variance to a water quality-based effluent limitation or groundwater effluent limitation included in a SPDES permit.
(4) A variance shall not be granted if standards or guidance values will be attained by implementing effluent limits required under section [754.1(a)(1) and (2)] 750-1.11(a) of this Title and by the permittee implementing cost-effective and reasonable best management practices for nonpoint source control.
Paragraph 6 of subdivision (b) of Section 702.17 is amended to read as follows:
(b) A variance may be granted if the requester demonstrates that achieving the effluent limitation is not feasible because:
(6) controls more stringent than those required by section [754.1(a)(1) and (2)] 750-1.11(a) of this Title would result in substantial and widespread economic and social impact.
Section 702.17 remains otherwise unchanged.
