This application is being made for wetland impacts which will occur on the parcel as a result of the project. Construction of the proposed facility will result in 1.19 acres of permanent disturbance to include filling of State and Federal wetlands, 7.28 acres of State regulated wetland buffer and 1,198 linear feet of an intermittent stream channel, with potential disturbance to wildlife habitat.

To mitigate for these impacts, the applicant proposes the creation of on-site wetlands at a minimum wetland creation to wetland loss ratio of 1:1 with the goal of providing 1.5:1, creation of approximately 1,000 linear feet of vegetated swales to mitigate for stream impacts and reconnect the hydrology and will further preserve approximately 27 acres of land, contiguous with the existing 150 acres of conservation lands, within the Florida Business Park through the creation of Conservation Easement to include 9.56 acres of wetland. These lands will also be managed and used to mitigate impacts to wildlife habitat.

In addition to the above permit, the project also requires the following Department permits, which have been concurrently noticed in this paper: 1) an Air State Facility permit for the operation of four boilers for the generation of process steam, all of which will use natural gas as the primary fuel and #2 fuel oil as an alternate fuel (DEC #4-2726-00061/00001); 2) a Water Supply Permit to increase the Town of Florida's approved taking by 1,000,000 gallons per day into it's Water District No. 1 (DEC #4-2726-00049/00003, WSA No. 08-A).

Article 19 Air State Facility

Project is Located:

Florida, Montgomery County


Project Description:

Hero Group, Inc. (Beech-Nut) proposes the construction of a new facility to process raw fruits and vegetables into infant food and to produce infant cereal. The facility will be located within Lot #4 of the Town of Florida Business Park, north of State Route 5S approximately 1 1/2 miles west of State Route 30, Town of Florida, County of Montgomery. The new infant food manufacturing facility will replace the existing Beech-Nut facilities currently located in the towns of Canajoharie and Fort Plain and will also serve as Hero Group, Inc.'s Corporate Headquarters. Hero Group, Inc. proposes the construction of a 580,000 square foot manufacturing plant, office building, truck loading and unloading facilities, employee/visitor, truck and trailer parking areas, stormwater structures and associated utility infrastructure on the site.

After review of the application the Department has prepared a draft Air State Facility Permit. The facility will operate four boilers for the generation of process steam, all of which will use natural gas as the primary fuel and #2 fuel oil as an alternate fuel. This facility will fall below the Title V applicability threshold of 100 tons per year for oxides of nitrogen (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO), and sulfur dioxide (SO2). The applicant has proposed restricting the potential to emit through enforceable permit conditions which will limit or cap emissions at a level which is less than 100 tons per year for each of the contaminants. In addition, the processing of raw fruits and vegetables into baby food produces volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions which the applicant has proposed restricting the potential to emit through enforceable permit conditions at a level which is less than 50 tons per year for VOC, the applicability threshold for Title V permitting. The applicant will be required to maintain fuel usage and production records to be used to determine the monthly and twelve month rolling total emissions. The applicant will be required to report the monthly and twelve month rolling total emissions to verify compliance with permit conditions and limits.

Persons wishing to inspect the subject Air State Facility files, including the application with all relevant supporting materials, the draft permit, and all other materials available to the DEC (the "permitting authority") that are relevant to this permitting decision should contact the DEC representative below. It is recommended that an appointment be made to confirm the availability of the subject files. The DEC will endeavor to make the files available within two business days of contact, during normal business hours (8:30 AM through 4:45 PM), unless the requestor wishes to inspect the files at a later date. Copies of the application materials and draft air permit are included with the Supplemental Draft EIS available for review at the Following locations: Florida Town Hall; Amsterdam Free Library; Fort Hunter Free Library; Town Clerks Office. An electronic version of the Draft EIS is available for review at the following web address: http://www.cha-llp.com/beechnuteis and the Draft Air State Facility Permit is available at the following web address: http://www.dec.ny.gov/dardata/boss/afs/issued_asf_h.html.

DEC will evaluate the application and the comments received on it to determine whether to hold a public hearing. A public hearing may be legislative or adjudicatory. A legislative public hearing is a proceeding which provides an additional opportunity for public comment. DEC's determination to hold a legislative public hearing will be based on whether a significant degree of public interest exists. If a legislative public hearing is to be held, a Notice of Hearing will be published which will include the time and place of the hearing and submitting comments. The applicant and all persons who have filed comments on the permit will be notified by mail of the public hearing.

Comments and requests for a legislative hearing should be in writing and addressed to the Department representative listed below.

An adjudicatory public hearing is a trial type proceeding which provides the opportunity for adjudication on the basis of evidence, including direct testimony and cross examination. An adjudicatory hearing is held only if substantive and significant issues relating to any findings or determinations the Department is required to make pursuant to the Environmental Conservation Law exists. A copy of the Department's permit hearing procedures is available upon request or on the Department's web site at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/regs/4483.html
