The Department has prepared a draft permit and has made a tentative determination, subject to public comment or other information, to approve an individual State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit for stormwater discharges to surface waters of the State from a chairlift replacement project at the Hunter Mountain Resort that will disturb approximately 10 acres of land. The project will involve the removal and replacement of the existing Lifts B and E, and the modified alignment of the new lifts will require approximately 3.5 acres of tree clearing on the site located off Klein Avenue in the Town of Hunter, Greene County. The work is ineligible for coverage under the statewide SPDES General Permit for Stormwater Discharges from Construction Activity because it will disturb over an acre of land that is located within a Class AA watershed, with no existing impervious cover, and a USDA Soil Slope Phase that includes slopes of 25% or greater. 

The receiving waters that may potentially receive stormwater discharges from this project include the Class AA(TS) Schoharie Reservoir, Class B(T/TS) and C(T/TS) Schoharie Creek, and the Class A and C Shanty Hollow Brook.
