January 2014 LTCP

On January 10, 2014, the Buffalo Sewer Authority (BSA) submitted its final Long Term Control Plan (LTCP) to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) (collectively referred to as the Regulatory Agencies) for approval. The LTCP was revised based on Regulatory Agency comments on the April 2012 LTCP submittal. The two most significant comments included requests that the BSA provide additional detail on their green infrastructure program and address the treatment plant bypasses more thoroughly with respect to treatment plant wet weather operations and the primary effluent disinfection process. In response, the BSA developed and incorporated a Green Infrastructure Master Plan and revised the original No Feasible Alternatives Analysis for the January 2014 LTCP. In addition, the LTCP was revised to address over thirty other comments on the April 2012 document.

One other significant revision to the April 2012 LTCP was the implementation schedule. As directed by the Regulatory Agencies, the April 2012 document included two separate implementation schedules, a 19-year BSA preferred schedule and shortened 15-year regulatory requested schedule. The LTCP also presented the potential impacts on the overall program of the 15-year schedule and in particular on the green infrastructure portion of the program. Subsequent to the submission of the April 2012 LTCP, the Regulatory Agencies determined that in order for the BSA to successfully implement the program while employing the greatest extent of GI, a 20-year schedule would be appropriate. The January 2014 LTCP reflects program revisions to accommodate the 20-year implementation schedule. The BSA’s LTCP is posted below.
