ENB Region 9 Completed Applications 09/05/2007

ENB Region 9 Completed Applications 09/05/2007

Allegany County

Applicant:

Hyland Facility Associates
25 Greens Hill Ln
Rutland, VT 05702

Facility:

Hyland Landfill
6653 Herdman Rd
Angelica, NY 14709

Application ID:

9-0232-00003/00007

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 19 Air State Facility
Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management

Project is Located:

Angelica, Allegany County


Project Description:

The applicant is proposing to construct and operate a Landfill Gas to Energy (LFGTE) Plant to utilize landfill gas emitted from Hyland Landfill, which is currently flared, for the production of "green" energy. The proposal requires modification to the facility's Solid Waste Management Permit and Air State Facility Permit. The proposed LFGTE plant will collect and convert landfill gas into electricity for sale on the open market. The Village of Angelica is proposing to upgrade its existing electric transmission lines, add new lines and build a transformer and substation southwest of the Village to support transmission of the energy produced at the LFGTE plant to an interconnection point with Rochester Gas and Electric's distribution system. The Department has drafted an Air State Facility (ASF) Permit pursuant to Article 19 (Air Pollution Control) of the NYS Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) and Federal Clean Air Act Amendments and a Solid Waste Management Facility Permit pursuant to Part 360 of 6NYCRR and has made a tentative determination to approve these applications for the LFGTE plant. The LFGTE plant will consist of three (3) G3520 Caterpillar stationary internal combustion engines. Any residual gas beyond the capacity of the engines will be combusted in the existing flare system. The landfill gas will be treated by a proprietary scrubbing system to clean the gas stream prior to combustion in the engines. The pre-treatment system will include filtering, dewatering and compression processes to remove and reduce certain contaminants from the gas stream prior to combustion. Operation of the gas treatment and combustion system satisfies the control requirements of 6NYCRR Part 212.4 and 6NYCRR Part 212.9. The design emission rates of the internal combustion engines for nitrogen oxides (NOx) and carbon monoxide (CO) are 0.6 grams per brake horsepower-hour (g/bhp-hr) and 3.0 g/bhp-hr, respectively. Routine performance testing and periodic monitoring will be completed on the internal combustion engines to confirm the engines consistently operate within the design criteria. Hyland must operate the engines with less than 20 percent opacity (six minute average), except for one six-minute period per hour of not more than 27 percent opacity. Compliance with the opacity standard will be monitored by completing weekly visible emission observations.


The proposed LFGTE plant will be constructed approximately 150 feet from the landfill's Cell 1. The landfill is located at 6653 Herdman Road, west of Peacock Hill Road, approximately 1 mile south of the Village of Angelica.

Erie County

Applicant:

Windsor Ridge Partners LLC
2635 Millersport Hwy
Getzville, NY 14068

Facility:

Windsor Ridge Subdivision
610 Lake AVE|(LAKE Ave at Siebert Rd)
Lancaster, NY 14081

Application ID:

9-1452-00103/00003

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

Lancaster, Erie County


Project Description:

The applicant proposes to construct Windsor Ridge South, a 295 lot residential subdivision with 294 building lots (lot 102 will not be developed), on an approximately 168 acre site located south of Brunk Road, west of Bowen Road, north of Hall Road and east of Lake Avenue, in the Town of Lancaster. The site contains NYS Freshwater Wetland OP-10, a Class 1 wetland, which is mapped along the South Branch Slate Bottom Creek (Class C stream) corridor, and additional wetlands regulated by the U.S. Department of the Army, Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District Office ("federal wetlands"). Full development of the plan will impact 0.72 + acre of OP-10 wetland for the ingress/egress road and associated public utilities corridor. In addition, 2.14 + acres of federal wetlands (which includes the 0.72 + acre regulated state wetland) and 3.69 + acres of OP-10 regulated adjacent area will be impacted by the proposed project. As mitigation, the project sponsor proposes to construct 5.95 acres of habitat which includes 5.01 + acres of mixed wetland habitat and 0.94 + acres of upland berm. The creation of 5.01 acres of new wetland will result in a mitigation ratio of nearly 7 to 1 for disturbance to state regulated wetlands. The 5.01 acres of wetland area to be created will also result in a mitigation ratio for disturbance of federal wetlands of greater than 2 to 1. In addition to wetland creation, a 30.88 + acre conservation area containing undisturbed state and federal wetlands, adjacent areas, and upland areas will be created. The conservation area will be protected by deed restrictions which will preserve the wetlands and adjoining areas in perpetuity. Conservation area monuments will be installed along the boundaries of the conservation area.
