Project Description:

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is proposing a Department Initiated Modification (DIM) to the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit NY0027863, pursuant to 6 NYCRR Part 750-1.18, and 750-1.19, the Priority Ranking System known as New York State's Environmental Benefit Permit Strategy (EBPS).

Outfall 001 provides secondary treatment for a design flow of 58,000 gpd. Treatment consists of bar screen, activated sludge secondary treatment, and final clarification. Sludge is digested aerobically and hauled to landfill. The second treatment system (Outfall 005) consists of a septic tank and sand filter with a design flow of 2,800 gpd.

The following changes to the permit are proposed: Sampling frequency for pH, Temperature, and settleable solids changed to 1/day; New requirements for seasonal disinfection and a new mercury minimization program.

As a result of the EBPS full technical review, a new five-year term is proposed. The permit includes updated forms and the latest general conditions. Details of changes are specified in the draft permit and fact sheet which may be viewed and printed from the Department web site at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/permits/6054.html.
