Project Description:

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has prepared a draft permit and made a tentative determination to reissue an expired State Pollution Discharge Elimination Systems (SPDES) permit (NY0029238) for the discharge of 0.01 million gallons per day of treated sanitary wastewater to NY Freshwater Wetland OW-2, Snake Swamp. Wastewater is processed through 2-10,000-gallon septic tanks, 3 buried infiltration beds, a recirculation chamber, and then discharges to Snake Swamp. The permit has been updated to include: a new requirement for seasonal effluent disinfection; a new daily max effluent limitation for Total Residual Chlorine (TRC) of 0.03 mg/L; a new requirement for dissolved oxygen of 7.0 mg/L; a modification to change the reporting for Ammonia (as NH3) to Ammonia (as N); and a modification to change the pH range from 6.0 – 9.0 SU to 6.5 – 8.5 SU. Requests for a legislative (public statement) hearing must be sent in writing to the DEC contact person below by the comment deadline. The Department assesses such requests pursuant to 6 NYCRR Section 621.8.
